STUDENT ILLNESS/ CALL OFF    1. Parents are to report their child's absence from school by phone by 8:00 a.m. to (330) 877-4290.  They may call and simply report this to the answering machine or the school secretary. (guardian name, student name, day of absence, reason for absence and his/her grade)

2. If no call off was made, the student should have the parent or guardian write an excuse giving student name, grade, date, days of absence, reason for absence and his/her signature which is to be submitted to the main office upon the student's return.

NOTE:  If a personal illness requires medical attention, please forward a copy of the certificate of the doctor. The student will report to the main office with his/her "Medical Excuse" after which a special medical admission slip will be issued. This serves to notify teachers and attendance officers that the absence was medically excused.   

3. The student should ask all teachers for make-up work. Assignments that are not made up will be reflected in their grade. Each student is responsible for seeing that all make-up work is completed.

Each parent/child was mailed a confidential username and password at the beginning of the school year.
Teachers and staff do not have passcode information.
If you lose the code or cannot log in, please contact the guidance office (Mrs. Conti) and she will print out a new letter for you.
We are not permitted to give this information out over the phone.
Midterm reports are no longer being sent home, so it is important to utilize this site for grade updates between grading periods.
Share the information with your child, as they have the opportunity to view PIV in classes, as well.
Access PIV link on the Parent or Student page.
Enter the username and password from the PIV letter. (Be sure Lake Local is selected as the domain)
