ABSENCE – Ohio law requires that schools verify absences daily.  When a student is absent, parents are requested to call the school (984-2342) before 9:00 a.m. to report the absence.  If the school is not notified, we will attempt to call the parent at home or work.  The office voice mail is available anytime if you wish to leave a message.  (984-2342)  If we have no contact with you the absence is unexcused.   Upon returning to school the student will need to bring a written excuse for our records.
