Verifying a Student's Absence
The school may excuse a student’s absence based upon a parental explanation within 24 hours of his or her student’s absence. When a student is absent, a parent verifies his or her student’s absence in one of the following ways:
WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE ABSENCE
- Parents may call the attendance office at (314) 415-7700 between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to speak directly with the school receptionist to verify their student’s absence.
- Before 7:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m., parents may leave a voice message (within 24 hours of the absence) at (314) 415-7726 to verify a student’s absence. Parents are encouraged to call the day of the absence or prior to the absence. Written notes are not accepted.
