Report an Absence

When your child is absent, please call the Elementary/Middle School office at 920-825-7321 by 9:00 am the day of the absence. The call should include the reason for the absence.  You no longer need to send a written excuse to school.  The phone call is very important for the safety of the students and to correctly complete attendance records. 

Parents are required to send notes for ALL of the following:
  • Early student pick-up
  • Student pick-up by other than parent
  • Bus changes
  • Pre-planned absences



According to the Southern Door School District Policy & Handbook:

Busing:  Students are required to wear a mask on the bus.  Families are allowed one drop off and pick up spot and those should be communicated to the EL/MS office secretary.

Pre-planned absences:
Planned Absence Form must be completed and returned to the school office at least 24 hours before the scheduled absence.  

If anyone other than the parent is picking up the student, the parent needs to send a note to the teacher stating this.

After school pick up:  Parents should pick up their child in the Family Pick up Zone located outside of door #1.  Families are given a number and should present that number when picking up their child.  If students are riding home with high school siblings, they should meet the sibling at the Talon Fitness Center.
