At Earhart Middle School, we understand that illnesses are unavoidable. Please be sure to call in your child's absences within 3 days of being out.  If your child leaves early for an appointment, a medical note from the doctor is needed in order to clear the child's absences for the day. Otherwise, they are marked unexcused for those classes they have missed.
You may email our attendance clerk at [email protected], leave a message on extension 53141, or send a note to school with your child when they return.
Saturday school is also available for those needing to make up truancies. Please contact Attendance for more information.
We thank you for your cooperation and  we look forward to helping your child succeed!
