Absence Reporting School Email: LKMSabsence@hcpss.org. Please do not send paper notes to school with your child.
We ask that you use the school attendance email, LKMSabsence@hcpss.org, for reporting your child's absences. Please do not send paper notes to school with your child. Since state regulations require that public schools keep written records of notes from parents pertaining to student attendance, a note sent via email from the parent/guardian must be submitted to the school within five (5) school days of the student’s return, indicating the date and reason for the absence. A doctor’s certificate is required in cases of long-term absence due to illness. Students are permitted to be lawfully absent for a death in the family, illness, a court summons, religious obligation, or for other emergencies.
Please refer to Policy 9010 to review policies and procedures for excused and unexcused absences. HCPSS Policy 9010
The first point of contact for absence questions should be sent to your child's teacher. Click here for the LKMS Staff List.
