Absences/Safe Call Program

Daves has established the SAFE CALL program. It is important parents call the office attendance line (335-2245) on any day a child will not be at school. Leave a message on the answering machine by stating the child's name, grade, teacher and reason for absence. Include your name and relationship in the message. If a child is absent and the school has not received a call stating a reason for absence, a member of the Daves Ave staff will place a call to your home/place of business to determine whether or not your child left for school.

Parents of children who are habitually tardy will be contacted by the principal to see if the parents are aware of the problem. If your child has a fever, cough, or is not feeling well, please keep him/her home and call the attendance line.
