Attendance Calling

The district office would like to give you an update on the automated attendance service. It has been activated and is programmed to call the primary number listed for the student whenever they have an unexcused absence. If you know your student is going to be absent, please contact the office before 8:30 AM to excuse the absence or send a note with your student when they return to school. If you call after the cut-off time, you will still receive the automated call.

If you would like to change the number that is called or remove a number, please contact the school office and they will be happy to make the change for you.
