REPORTING A STUDENT ABSENCE
After you have called the school to report your child as absent for the day (absence phone lines are listed to the right), you may drop off a paper note to the office or submit an electronic absence note. To submit your note online, follow these steps.


STEP ONE:
Sign in to your PowerSchool account online:

Please note, absences can only be submitted on the PowerSchool website and cannot be reported through the PowerSchool App. If you need assistance creating a PowerSchool account, please contact your child's school.

STEP TWO:
If you have multiple children associated with your account, please be sure to select the child who will be absent and then locate the "Submit Absence" button on the left (it is the fifth button down).

STEP THREE:
Complete the required fields and click the blue Submit button in the lower right corner.

STEP FOUR:
Once submitted, a confirmation message will appear across the top of the screen which will include the email address you may use to submit your doctor/dentist note. If your child is sick and a note is not required, no further action is needed. 

When emailing, please place your child's name in the subject line of the email. Scanned copies of notes are preferred; however, a photograph of the note is acceptable as long as the text is legible. Notes may also be dropped off at the school during regular office hours.
