If the absence is not planned in advance, please call and leave a voice mail message on the 24-Hour attendance lines 566-3300 or 742-6404 or email the registrar, Cindy LeLake, at lelake_cindy@asdk12.org. Remember to include your child's name in the message or email.

2. If you are unable to send a note, please call and leave a voice mail message on attendance lines 566-3300 or 742-6404 or email the registrar, Cindy LeLake, at lelake_cindy@asdk12.org.

     Please include:

       1. your child’s name
       2. who will be picking them up
       3. what time he/she will be picked up.

All students being picked up early will need to be picked up and signed out at the front office!

 

Visitors:

All visitors to the school (parents/ guardians, etc.) must sign in at the main office and collect a visitor’s ID badge to wear while visiting the building.
Classroom visits by parents and guardians are welcomed. To create the least interruption of the teaching process, requests for the classroom visits should be arranged through the teacher. Teachers can then collaborate to ensure that visits are productive, appropriate, and timely.
