Attendance & Absence Reporting

Attendance and Absence Reporting

Report an Absence: Please call 617-984-8727

If your child is going to be absent from school for any reason, please call the school office at 617-984-8727 before 9:00 a.m. on the day of the absence to report it. If we do not receive a call from you, our attendance aide will try to call a parent/guardian at home or the workplace. If no contact is made, your child may be considered truant.

All absences require a note of explanation from the parent/guardian. In addition, all absences require a doctor’s or other professional’s note to be formally excused. Extended absences may require formal documentation.

Regular school attendance is fundamental for a student’s academic success and personal growth. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to learn the material, participate in class discussions, and complete assignments.

Excessive absences may impact a student's academic standing and eligibility for certain extracurricular activities. We encourage parents/guardians to prioritize regular attendance to ensure their child's academic progress and overall well-being.
