In the event of your student’s absence from school, we ask that parents call the main office. Calls should be made to 503-916-5680 and the information that would be most helpful is:
- Name of student
- Name of person calling
- Reason for the absence
- Duration of absence (if known)
This information can also be conveyed by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Students arriving late to school must first check in at the School Office. Parents are welcome to sign the student in personally or send the student with a note. Parent phone calls and emails will also suffice. The definition of an excused tardy is outlined on the District's Attendance Matters website.
Should a student need to leave early from school, an adult must be present prior to the student being called from class. Please be able to show acceptable identification to office staff that connects you to the student by school enrollment records. This is for the safety of our students and minimizes the disruption to education.
We greatly appreciate our Jackson parents’ cooperation with these procedures.
