ATTENDANCE LINE:             803-8290

Attendance Policy

When a student is going to be absent from school for any reason, the parent must call the attendance line (803-8290) and report it by 9:00 a.m. Upon returning to school following an absence or absences, the student shall bring a written statement.  The note must contain dates of absences and reason as well as parent/guardian signature.  These statements determine if the absence is excusable.  Failure to report (verbal or written) a student absent within 24 hours will result in the absence being unexcused.  Students will be considered unexcused for all absences other than those stipulated by administrative guidelines, state, or federal statutes.

From our Yearbook Staff: The Jam on Tuesday night (9/29) was a big hit! There were tons of things to do including basketball, volleyball, corn-hole, dancing, and just simply hanging out with friends. The Jam also offered a variety of food and drink. After The Jam, students had the opportunity to go to the Flashes vs Fall Creek Valley Middle School football game. What a great day to go to FTMS West! Story and photos by Ethan W. Scott
