All absent and tardy students need to be reported directly to the office by parents and guardians, so we do not worry about the whereabouts of our students. To report an absence or tardy, please try to call us as soon as you become aware that there will be an absence or tardy by calling our 24 hour automated system at 617-993-5702. Tardy students arriving after 8:40 AM must be checked-in at the main office by an adult. Note: Instruction at Winn Brook Elementary School begins at 8:40 AM each day. The Winn Brook School strongly recommends that families work hard in order to consistently bring students to school on time. There are only 180 days of school and each day counts! Absent and tardy students do not achieve success at the same level and rate as their peers who consistently arrive to school, on time, and ready to learn.

Please note: By notifying the office about an absence or tardy the student will be marked “excused.” If the school staff never hears from a parent/guardian regarding a specific tardy or an absence, it is assumed to be “unexcused.” Regardless of how the absence or tardy is recorded, students who are chronically late or absent will be contacted by our school administration team if there is an attendance law/regulation violation.
