What is the difference between and parent note and Dr. Note?
notes are limited to 10 notes of combined excused and/or unexcused
absences. Dr. Notes are unlimited. If you go to a dr for any reason, get
a note. It saves parent notes for the little reasons.
If I call my child in, why should I send a note the next day back?
A note will make sure the absence is checked and properly marked. Also, a note is needed for auditing purposes.
Why should I call in?
you call in, you will not receive a call from the school. These calls
keep coming until answered. A call lets us know that you know where your
child is and not considered truant.
What time should my child be at school?
School and Middle School start time is 7:30 am. They should be in the
classroom in their seats ready to go at this time. There is a warning
bell giving them 5 minutes to get to class.
