Step 1 - Call it in:

If your child will be absent or tardy, please call the KP Attendance line at 860-233-8236, option 1. Leave your child's full name and grade, along with the reason for the tardiness or absence.

Step 2 - Written Requirement:

In order to comply with State of Connecticut Statute for attendance, all absences will be unexcused until a written note is received by the school. A parent/guardian note will be accepted for absences which meet the criteria for excusal (see link below). For the students' tenth absence, and all thereafter, documentation of the absence must be submitted by a medical professional, unless the absence meets criteria outlined in the link below. You will receive a call from our electronic system to remind you of a written requirement for absences. Thank you for your cooperation and partnership.
