Attendance Helpful Hints

When a student is gone from school for any reason, a parent or guardian needs to notify the office.  You can do this several ways. 

  • Call the attendance line at (608) 845-4003 by 9:00 AM. After 9:00 am, please call the main office at 845-4000.  

  • Send an email to Savanna Oaks Attendance at:

If a student is late or needs to leave during the day for an appointment...

Please send him/her to school with "A Note From Home" with your student. Have him/her bring the note to the attendance window first thing in the morning (8:20) or into the office when he/she arrives. You may also leave this information on the attendance hotline (608) 845-4003 in the morning.

If you are planning a vacation or other event and know in advance that your student will be absent..

Please notify the office 1-10 days prior to that absence.  Your student will receive an "Advance Make-up" form from the office that will notify teachers and allow them to assign homework that would be missed.

If your child doesn’t feel well at school...

Please encourage him/her to stop in and visit the school nurse before contacting home.  The school nurse, or office staff, will make contact with a parent if the student needs to go home due to illness. If the student does end up going home, this becomes a medically excused absence, but only if the student has visited the health room. All students must first sign out in the office before leaving the building.  

NOTE:  If a student accumulates 5 – 10 partial or full days of absences a parent will receive an attendance letter.  Please read it carefully for VASD attendance policies.
