You must notify the Community Education Office each time your child will be absent from our program. Please call 781-784-1574 before 2:30 PM to report the absence. Many parents wrongly assume that by notifying the school we will also be told of the absence. For every child we do not see on their assigned day we must confirm their whereabouts. Precious time is wasted in locating students who we were not told in advance would be absent or dismissed. In the event of a true missing child we need every second to locate the child.
