Tardiness Procedures

Students who arrive late to school must report directly to the counseling/attendance office to sign in.  Students are expected to be in class to begin work when the bell tone sounds at 7:25 a.m.

Attendance Procedures

Please remember to call us if your child is going to be absent. We need the information the day of the absence. To report an absence, call (248) 726-5010.

This is a 24-hour answering machine. The following information must be left on the answering machine.

  1. Student's first and last name (spelled out)
  2. Parent name, if different from student's last name
  3. Day and date of absence
  4. Reason for absence

If your student is arriving late, needs an early dismissal, or you are requesting homework, you should call the regular school number at (248) 726-5000.

All absence calls are for one day only unless you specify otherwise. We suggest that you call as early as possible. Many telephone calls come in between 7:00 and 7:45 a.m.

We do not accept calls or notes from students. Students who are "excused absent" should see each teacher upon returning to receive missed assignments. It is the student's responsibility make up the work.
