How To Mark Your Child's Absence in School Messenger
**REPORTING ABSENCES** Very Important for our tracking of health and safety for our school
HOW TO MARK YOUR CHILD'S ABSENCE IN SCHOOL MESSENGER
- FLU - illness due to flu and cold like symptoms
- Other Illness or Injury - if they are experiencing symptoms that you do not deem to be flu or cold like, or your child has a medical appointment.
- Parent Excused - if your child is experiencing no illness/symptoms at all, please choose this. The parent excused absence should only be chosen if you are keeping your child home for a reason that does not pertain to a medical issue. (i.e dance competition)
Absences may also be reported by calling SchoolMessenger at 1-877-246-9970 or using the SchoolMessenger App.
If you experience any problems we are happy to take your call at the school office at
