School Absences

School Absences


It is important for your child to attend school - it's the law.  Please visit the New Mexico Public Education Department's school attendance policy for specific information. 

If you know in advance that your child will be absent, please notify your child’s homeroom teacher as soon as possible, as well as the front office staff. You can email  rvollmer@sfps.k12.nm.us or call (505) 467-3100.

If your child is sick, please email rvollmer@sfps.k12.nm.us with "Absent: (Your Child's Name)" in the subject line or call (505) 467-3100 as soon as possible.

Please note that notifying the school is required, but does not constitute an excused absence.  Please visit the New Mexico Public Education Department's school attendance policy for specific information on excused absences and speak directly with Mr. Lee or Ms. Hubley if you have any questions about excused absences.
