Attendance Calls

Automated Attendance Calls

LPS utilizes automated telephone calls to parents and guardians of students who are reported absent. These calls will be made daily at 10:00 AM for all schools except the high school, which will continue their existing practice for attendance notification. If a parent or guardian calls to preemptively report their student will be absent, they will not receive a call.

By default, all phone numbers and e-mail addresses listed in SchoolMessenger will be contacted when an absence call is performed. If you would like to change your notification preferences, you can do so using the instructions available on the Alerts and School-to-Home Messaging page.

Staff will use great care in taking attendance as accuracy is important. Should you receive a call that your child is absent, but your child is not at home, contact the school immediately so that we may follow-up.
