Student Absence

Student Absence and 

Leaving Early

If your child is going to be absent from school for any reason, please contact the school office (907) 225-4128 first thing in the morning. All absences are unexcused until a parent/guardian contacts the office to excuse their student.

We are noticing many parents showing up at 3:00pm to pick up their child early. Our school day does not get over until 3:25 Kindergarten and 3:30 1st through 6th, with a lot of learning still happening right up until the dismissal bell. If you could contact the office first thing in the morning so the classroom teacher can plan for the early dismissal, that would be very helpful and appreciated. It will avoid having so many classroom interruptions. Thank you!
