Parents must report children who are absent or will be late to school. If you email the teacher about an absence or late arrival, please also call the Absence/Tardy Line. If a teacher is absent, an absent/tardy email message may not get relayed to the office.
The Absence/Tardy phone number is 617-559-9617. After the recording, please leave the child’s name, teacher, and day and date of absence. Call the day before or prior to 8:30 a.m. on the day of the absence. The Call Back Program is a safety procedure for children who walk to school or wait at a bus stop without adult supervision. You may also report extended absences such as vacations.
