Please call the office prior to the start of the school day if your child will be absent. You may speak with an office clerk or leave a message on the school's answering machine. Children who have been absent from school should bring a note from a parent or guardian upon return stating the reason for the absence.  The child should present the note to the homeroom teacher who will keep it on file. To report an absence, please call: 636-474-3999 If you know your child is going to be absent ahead of time and would like make-up work, please call before 12 p.m. on the day you wish to pick up the work. Parents who call for work after 12 p.m. (noon) may pick up work on the following school day.

Regular and punctual attendance is vital to the learning process and though sometimes school absence is unavoidable we encourage everyone to make every effort at keeping the loss of instructional time to a minimum in an effort to boost and sustain student learning.
