*Please use the school form for your child’s absences.  You can print this directly off the school website.  Please limit absences and check-outs as much as possible…attendance is important!  And remember our PATRIOT PERFECT ATTENDANCE monthly incentives! We highly encourage attendance, but we know occasionally absences occur for various reasons.  Please send a note for every day your child misses school including check outs.  If your child visited the doctor, it is always best to have a doctor's note.  Sending a note could keep you off of the truant list.  Details are always available in your child's agenda in the handbook section. 

 

*If you have not signed up for parent portal, I strongly encourage you to do so.  Check with the front office to receive your login information.  Grades are posted as soon as I have them graded, so this way you will know immediately what is happening with your child and his/her grades.
