f your child is going to be absent from school, please notify the office as soon as possible at 480-472-8701.  Our voice mail is 24 hours so you may call and leave a message anytime.

State law requires that you authorize your child’s absence from school and notify us in advance or at the time of the absence. Your call 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’s vital that we have one or more telephone numbers to contact you during the school day. If your numbers change, please let us know as soon as possible.

If you are unable 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 by one day after your child returns, the absence will be considered unexcused. Please let us know if your child will be out of school for an extended period of time. If your child is absent 10 consecutive school days, his/her name will be taken off our roll books automatically, unless your child has a prolonged illness or there are other unusual circumstances.




Tardiness results in a serious loss of instruction time for the student and a distraction for his or her teacher and classmates. A student is tardy if not seated in the classroom when the final bell for the start of class rings.
