Report an Absence

Attendance Line

  • Rex Putnam 503-353-5888

  • Sabin Schellenberg 503-353-5959

If your student is going to be absent, please call 503-353-5888 and leave a message stating their name, grade, and date of absence. Our attendance secretary checks the messages frequently and will excuse your student from class.

If you need to pick up your student early, please call 503-353-5888 and leave a message stating their name, the date, and the time of pickup. It is very important to leave this message AT LEAST one hour prior to the student's pickup time. If we are notified too close to the pickup time, we cannot guarantee your student will be released on time. Arrange with your student ahead of time where you will meet them. We will send a release slip to your student and your student will go directly out to meet you at the arranged location.

For serious attendance issues, including long term absences from school (more than 5 days), please contact your student's counselor at 503-353-5871.
