Attendance Contact Information:
For the safety of your child the attendance staff will attempt to contact you on the day of the absence to verify it. You may call the attendance office after 7:30 a.m. (315-434-3051 or firstname.lastname@example.org) to tell us your child is not coming to school that day. Otherwise, you will be notified via automated message and/or e-mail.

The district reserves the right to require a doctor’s note.
