If your child will not be in school, please report the absence to the health office by phone or email before 8:00 am. If you do not contact our school nurse by this time, she will contact you at home or at work to ascertain your child’s whereabouts. Children must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
Students will only be dismissed to a parent or legal guardian, or to emergency contacts designated in Family Access.
Family vacations during school days are discouraged; however, if your child must miss school due to a vacation, parents/guardians are asked to contact the Shepard health office a few days in advance. Please know that teachers may not always be able to create individual lessons or homework before pre-arranged absences.
