    If you do not have an email address you can sign up for free email service (see below).
    Here is a sampling of some of the free email services you can sign up for:

    • A note, signed by the parent/guardian must be brought to the Main office before the student’s first class on the day of return.  If a doctor treats the illness, a doctor’s note should be attached to the absence note. A doctor’s note is also required if a student is absent for 3 or more consecutive days.
    • Absences are reported to parents by computer generated phone calls on the day of occurrence. If parents/guardians are unaware of the absence, they should call the Main Office.
