Report an Absence

When a child will be absent, a parent is requested to call the school and give the date(s), and anticipated length of absence. Parents may leave a message on the answering machine after or before school hours. The School Department Policy requires that families send a note explaining the circumstances of the absence to the teacher upon their child's return to school in order for an absence to be considered an excused absence. View the CPS Student Attendance Policy.

If your child will be absent, please call 617.349.6841 and either leave a message on the answering machine (before school hours) or speak with the school secretary. Please leave the following information:

  • Student name
  • Teacher
  • Grade
  • Room #
  • Day and date of absence

Students should bring a note explaining the reason for the absence upon returning to school. A child arriving after 7:55 AM is considered tardy and must check in with the main office.
