Please call the main office line at 781-762-0694 to report your child's absence from school. If you are calling prior to 8:00AM, please leave your child's name, grade, teacher and the reason for the absence on the answering machine. You may also leave a message for school personnel.
Please remember that, for the safety of your child, we ask you to call into the Absence Line whenever your child is out of school. If a parent or guardian is not heard from by 9:00 AM, the school will try to reach them by using the numbers recorded on the emergency card. In all cases of absences, a note signed by the parent or the student's physician is required upon a student's return to school.
Please display the following numbers in a convenient place at home.
