Reporting Student Absences
We appreciate parents who are keeping students home from school with the flu to keep illness from spreading. To help us keep accurate attendance, however, we ask parents to call students in to our attendance line each day your student is at home sick. Thank you for your help!
If your child has not yet ordered a yearbook, there is still time. Order forms are available in the main office, the cafeteria and in the PE locker rooms. It can also be found on the Addams’ website. Completed orders can be turned in to the main office.
