Report an Absence

Absence Reporting

  • Report your child's absence with the convenience of an online form OR email

    If your child is sick with any of the following symptoms, please do not send him/her to school and contact the campus clinic as soon as possible:

    • Fever of a 100.0 or higher
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhea
    • Cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Unusual muscle or body aches
    • Sore throat

    Parents/guardians who wish to use this service must have a valid email address documented at the campus. Email addresses are submitted with parent/guardian contact information in the student packets at the beginning of the school year or at new student registration. If you are unsure if your current email address is documented, contact the campus attendance clerk.

    Online Form

    Complete the form either the day your child is absent (if it was unexpected), or in advance if you know ahead of time, such as for a doctor or dentist appointment. If your child will be out for more than one day, please submit a form for each day they are out.
