Reporting Absences

Tue, 08/30/2016 - 10:37am
To report your child's absence, please email the school at hmsabsence@hcpss.org by 8:30 a.m.

If a child has a fever, he/she needs to be fever free for 24 hours, with no medication, before returning to school.

On the day your child returns to school, an explanatory note should be submitted to the school indicating the date(s) and reason for the absence. A doctor's certificate is required in cases of long-term absence (more than three days). A note should also be submitted upon return, to request exclusion from activities (i.e., physical education).

Please do not email individual teachers.

On the third consecutive day of absence, makeup work may be requested. All requests should be made before 8:30 a.m. by calling the front office - 410-880-5830.  Work will be available in the front office after 3:00 pm.
