When a student is not in school, the student’s parent or guardian is expected to call the school and report the absence, reason for absence and expected duration, if known. NO WRITTEN NOTES WILL BE ACCEPTED unless the home has no phone. Calls to report absences should be made between 7:30—9:30 am on the day of the absence. The attendance phone number is 402-898-0436. A message may be left if the line is busy or after regular school hours. A student will be considered “unexcused” if the absence is not confirmed over the phone.
Parents should try to avoid taking students from school for appointments if possible. If it is necessary, please call ahead to let us know. Your child must check out through the office and back in upon their return. If you wish to have the absence waived, your child may bring a signed note from the doctor when they return to school. Only parental phone calls will be accepted for student release.
