Student Absenses

A Note from the Nurse on Student Absences

 

Mrs. Ward, the school nurse, would like to remind parents that we have a very strict attendance policy and they must report all student absences directly to the school.

To report a student as being absent, the Attendance Office must be notified at (508) 763-8011 ext. 148 by 11:00 a.m. on the day of the absence. Additionally, a note must be provided explaining the absence upon the return of the student.  If the student requires NON-ROUTINE medical treatment, including an emergency room visit, hospitalization, or prolonged illness, they must provide medical documentation of the student’s condition, clearance for re-entry to school and any physical limitations.  Call the school nurse at (508)763-8011 ext. 130 to schedule a re-entry meeting
