Parents should call the school office at 262-642-6740 x 4223 before 8:00 am if your child will be absent. If leaving a message, please include your name, your child’s name, and the reason for the absence. If your child will be arriving late, please also let us know approximately what time your child will be arriving and if s/he will be having hot lunch. 

East Troy Middle School uses the school notification system SchoolMessenger for attendance calls. The families of students whose absences have not been verified by 8:00 am with a parent/guardian will receive an automated phone call placed to primary phone and parent/guardian cell phone numbers listed in Skylert.  Click here for instructions on choosing your calling preferences.

If you know your child will be absent in advance, click here for pre-arranged absence form.  The necessary permission and signature(s) are to be obtained and turned into the office at least one (1) day prior to proposed absence.  If you have pre-arranged your child's absence, it is not necessary to call the office.

Attendance and truancy policies are available in the Student Informational Book.
