Reporting a Student Absence


Student Absence

In accordance with Minnesota State law, children should attend school on a regular basis. We believe that students who regularly attend school are more likely to be successful academically. However, we know that at times students will miss school for illness, family vacations, or other reasons.

Reporting an absence

If your child will be late or absent from school for the day please report their absence to the school in one of the following ways:

  • Call the attendance line at 651-982-8275, or
  • Record your student's absences electronically via ParentVUE (including future and/or planned absences). Log into ParentVUE and select “Record absence” next to your child’s name to begin the process. School staff will review new entries daily as soon as possible.
  • If you are picking up your student early from school, please include the pickup time in the note area and our staff will call the student to the office so they are ready to be picked up when you arrive. 

Both the phone and online options are available 24 hours a day. When you report the absence, you will need to give a reason for the tardy or absence.
