When reporting an absence, always include your student's name, grade, teacher and, most importantly, the reason for the absence. If no reason is given, the school is required to contact you to determine the reason for absence. Please help us by providing this important information upon your initial contact with the school. Here are the ways you can contact us to report the absence/reason:

         1. Call: 415-945-9046 (press 1). Speak clearly and please spell your student's name.

         2. Email: coveabsentee@lcmschools.org 

    If you have questions about when to stay home, please check the district guidelines or link to our health page.
