If a child will be absent from school, the parent should phone the school before 8:40 a.m. so that the teachers can be informed before they go to their classes. In the past, parents have often asked another child at school to pass on the message pertinent to the absence of a brother or sister. This is not desirable because children may forget, and the message is not passed on. Advance notice of doctor or dental appointments would be appreciated.
Parental cooperation in observing this practice is not only a matter of common courtesy, but also a necessity. The world is not a safe place and it is necessary to know whether the child is either safely at home or in school. If no message has been received by 9:00 a.m., the secretary will phone the home to make inquiries.
