Kendall's Attendance Policy

Please call the school if your child will not be in school. If we have not received a call, the nurse has been instructed to call your home phone number first and then the mother or father's work number to verify that your child is sick. Upon return to school, please send in a written excuse. You do not need to call every day if you tell the nurse that your son or daughter will be out multiple days.

Please try to give us advanced notice of appointments, religious obligations or other absences if at all possible.

Our main concern is for your child's health and safety. Our goal is to insure that both the school and the parents know where children are at all times. If you have any questions regarding the attendance policy, feel free to contact either of our offices.

Thank you,

Sharon Smith, Elementary Principal 659-8317  

Carol D'Agostino, Junior/Senior High Principal 659-2706
