Process For Email Submission of Absence Excuses

This message is to provide you the information necessary to send the District an emailed student excuse for absences.  You can now send an emailed message to your child’s building attendance secretary with your written excuse of why he/she was absent.  If you use this system, you no longer need to send a handwritten note in with your student when he/she returns to school following an absence.  

In your email, please include YOUR CHILD'S FULL NAME, DATE OF ABSENCE, REASON FOR ABSENCE, AND PARENT FULL NAME.   If a doctor’s note is required due to the length of or accumulation of absences, you can attach a scanned copy to your email or have your child submit the original when he/she returns.

Please email the following dedicated building addresses to communicate absence information:

    Senior High School:                              shsattendance@exetersd.org
    Junior High School:                              jhsattendance@exetersd.org
    Reiffton School:                                      rftattendance@exetersd.org
    Lorane Elementary School:                   lorattendance@exetersd.org
    Jacksonwald Elementary School:           jkdattendance@exetersd.org
    Owatin Creek Elementary School:          owcattendance@exetersd.org

Your building's webpage will also include all necessary information as well as the dedicated building email address to use for sending in your child's absence notes. The address is located on the school's website underneath the building contact information. Please note that emails will only be accepted from the email address you have provided in your child's Skyward account.  

Additionally, this email system is not to be used for student tardiness parent reporting or parent notifying district of picking up a child who is currently in attendance at school.

Attendance information for each building is located under the "About Us" section of each building's website.
