Submitting Electronic Absence Notes

New in 2017-18: Absence Notes may be submitted to the school as an email attachment with the following guidelines.

Directions on submitting electronic absence notes:

     1. Parent or guardian writes the absence note on a piece of paper.

     2. Parent/guardian signs the note.

     3. Parent/guardian scans the note or takes a picture of the note.

     4. Parent/guardian attaches scanned note/picture of the note to an email.

     5. Parent/guardian sends the message to the designated email address for absence notes.

        (Each school has its own attendance email account).

Please follow these guidelines:

  • NO electronic signatures will be accepted.
  • ONLY emails with a signed absence note will be accepted.
  • Emailed notes MUST be sent to the designated email account. Please do not send directly to school staff members.
  • Notes must contain the dates of the absence, students name, grade level, reason for absence and parent/guardian signature. 
  • The designated email account is for absence notes only . All other content should be sent to a school staff member directly.
