State law requires that you authorize your child's absence from school and notify us in advance or at the time of absence. Call (480) 472-3301 to report an absence. Please do not call the main office or health office. Your message to us will save time and help protect your child. If your child is absent and we don't hear from you, we'll do our best to contact you by phone within two hours after the first missed class. It is vital that we have one or more phone numbers to contact you during the school day. If your numbers change, let us know right away. Whenever it is impossible for you to notify us in advance or at the time of an absence, please notify us that the absence was authorized on the morning your child returns to school. If no notice of authorization is received within one day after their return, the absence shall be considered unexcused. Please let us know if your child will be out of school for a long period of time. If your child is absent 10 consecutive school days, his/her name will be automatically taken off our roll books unless your child is traveling with you or has a prolonged illness.
If a student is late, he/she must come to the office with a parent to obtain a tardy pass. This is of vital importance for the attendance records and the fact that phone calls are made to the home of all absent students.
