    Reporting Absences:

    To report a student's absence, please email

    Use the subject heading Excuse Note for absence-excuse notes.

    Use the subject heading Early Dismissal for early dismissals.

    Please remember that any early dismissals will still require that you submit excuse notes if your student misses class.
