Frequently Asked Questions
When does school get out on Fridays and Early Dismissal Days?
How do we report a student absence?
To report a student’s absence, please call 801-481-4819. Parents may EXCUSE up to 8 absences with a call to the school and a written note. On the day that your child needs to miss school, call the office to report the absence. When your child returns, write a short note to turn in to the office or turn in a doctor’s note if you went to the doctor, so that we can verify that the absence was excused. Most children do not need to miss more than 8 days in a school year, but if that occurs bring a note from your doctor and the absence will be marked excused. If you do not call or bring in a doctor’s note when your child is absent, the absence will be marked UNEXCUSED. Too many unexcused absences can result in a court hearing with many possible consequences. By law, Emerson staff must keep track of unexcused absences and must send out citations to parents if there are too many unexcused absences. Help us avoid this by always excusing your child’s absences.
