Attendance Procedures - Clarification!BMS has an automated call system that will notify you that your child is absent. The automated call system will go out at 10:30 each day. There is no longer a need to call into the office when your child is absent, but a note from the parent is still required within three (3) days of the absence. The written excuse can be a note from a physician explaining the illness or a hand-written note from a parent/guardian stating the reason for the absence.IF YOU RECEIVE AN ABSENCE CALL IN ERROR, PLEASE NOTIFY THE OFFICE AT 570-784-9100.A maximum of ten (10) days of cumulative lawful absences verified by parental notification may be permitted during a school year. All absences beyond the ten cumulative days will require an excuse from a physician. Please note that all absences will be considered unlawful until the school receives a written excuse within three (3) days of the absence.
