Absence Policy

If your child is going to be absent, please be sure to call our attendance clerk, Maggie Lorta, at (520) 375-8800 to excuse the absence.

If your child is absent for more than 3 days, we will need a doctor's note to excuse the absences.

It is also important not to pick your child up too early or bring him or her in too late, as this will affect his or her perfect attendance record.
