If your child will be absent from school, you need to call 650-5304 before 8:00 a.m. or use the Report an Absence link on the website.  Please report your child’s name, grade level, teacher, and reason for being absent. Please see the Elementary Handbook for a complete explanation of our attendance policy.


    Students that are not in the building by the second bell at 7:55 a.m. are considered tardy.  They would then need to go to the office and pick up a tardy slip. Any child that receives three or more tardies in a month will receive a wake-up call for five days.  Being prompt to school is necessary for the academic success of your child. 



    If your child has an appointment during the school day, please adhere to the following procedures:

    1. Send a note to your child’s teacher informing the teacher of the departure time.

    2. An adult must come to the office with their driver’s license and sign the child out of the building.

    3. If the student will be returning to class, YOU MUST come to the office to sign them back in.

    4. Be sure to ask the medical office for a receipt regarding your visit, which will need to be turned in to Salk’s school office when your child returns to school.
