• Daily attendance is encouraged and expected.  Students benefit most from our program when they can be part of the classroom every day.  Of course, there are good reasons for excused absences from school, which include: personal illness, illness in the family necessitating the presence of the child, quarantine of the home, death of a relative, observation of religious holidays/absence for religious reasons, or professional appointments.

    When a student is absent from school, the parents need to call the school at 614-718-8980 or email If your child is absent and we have not heard from you, the school secretary will make every attempt to contact the parents at home or at work. If your student is tardy or needs to leave school early he/she must be signed in or out at the office.

    In the event of a planned absence, parents need to send a note to school at least three days before the absence indicating the dates your child will be gone and the reason for the absence.  Check with your child’s teacher to find out what will be covered during the child’s absence.
