1)      Absence Notes/Calls – Parents, please be sure to send in a note or call the school EVERY TIME that your son or daughter is absent from school. If he/she visits a doctor (or dentist), pick up a note at the office and turn it in to school (these types of absences are always ‘Excused’). Parents may write a ‘Parent Note’ or use a phone call to excuse up to 12 total absence occurrences (doctor’s notes are included in this 12) - After 12 doctor’s notes/parent notes/phone calls, only a doctor’s note can excuse an absence. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Alden Brown Elementary at (937) 746-7610.


2)     Communication – It is our goal at Alden Brown Elementary to maintain constant communication with our parents. If you should ever have a question or need to speak to your child’s teacher, please contact the teacher via email (you may get the email address from a building secretary if you do not know it) or by phone (937-746-7610). We look forward to keeping lines of communication open with you this year!
