Sawtooth Middle School Attendance Procedures

School begins at 8:35 A.M. Students are expected to be in their classrooms by this time. If a student arrives later than 8:35 A.M., check the student in at the MAIN OFFICE.

If your student will be absent from school, please call to report the absence by 10 A.M.

The school attendance number is 855-4205. You can call the school absence line 24 hours a day to leave a message regarding the student’s absence.

If you are checking out your student during the school day, please come into the main office to do this. It is helpful to send a note stating the time to meet you in the office. This will minimize the disruptions in class and the waiting time.

For the safety of students, State law requires a parent or guardian to release a student from school. Upon return to the school, please send your student in with a waiver from their appointment.

All absences that can be documented with a Doctor’s note/waiver are EXCUSED. Please make sure to ASK for a note from your scheduled appointment to give to us.
