In our efforts to expedite the process of reporting your child's absence, you may email your student's absence to ncabsentee@lcmschools.org. Please include your student's name, grade, teacher and, most importantly, the reason for the absence. If no reason is given, the absence is considered unexcused. Please know that unless the absence is for a family emergency, bereavement, or medical reason, it will be marked as unexcused.

    You can also call (415) 927-6965 x1. Remember to speak clearly and please spell your student's name. 

    If your child is ill and displaying any of the symptoms related to COVID-19, please adhere to the following protocol.

    When does isolation start?

    Isolation begins as day 0 on the date symptoms began, or on the date the test was taken if without symptoms.  

    Stay home (isolate) for 5 days after symptoms start (or after positive test if no symptoms). 

    When does isolation end?

    • Isolation can end and students may return to school on day 6 if fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication AND symptoms are resolving.

    • Students with resolving symptoms are not advised to test again and should wear a mask from day 6-10. 

    • A negative test should not be required to return to school/care unless the child/student is unable to mask until day 11 due to age or developmental/medical concerns.
