Your child’s punctual, regular attendance at school is a large component of his/her success. We encourage all families to make
regular school attendance a family priority. We understand, however, that illness and occasional extenuating circumstances will
require that your child be absent from school. In that case, we ask that when your child is absent, that you call the school (262-
1490). Please leave a message on the voice mail if you are calling during non-school hours. Please let us know if your child is
having any flu-like symptoms. Flu-like symptoms include: fever of 100 or more, cough, sore throat, or body aches. We are
asking that your child stay home for at least 24 hours after their fever is gone. If you know that your child will be absent for any
number of consecutive days, please indicate that on the first call rather than calling every day. Absences exceeding three days will
require a physician’s excuse before returning to class. In addition, exemption from physical education class will only be allowed
with a doctor’s excuse as well.
If a child is not excused by a phone call or note from a parent by 3:30 pm on the day following the absence, the child is then
considered truant. Unexcused late or tardy to school may be treated as truancy when a pattern becomes habitual or
                                               HELP KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE
As we begin the school year, we ask for your help in working to promote the safety of our children. The Watertown Police
Department has been sending an officer by Webster before and after school. Please note that wherever there is yellow paint you
may NOT park during school hours. He tells me that any unattended vehicle will be ticketed. If you are doing a quick drop off or
pick up you will not be ticketed. Please note that the first 2 spots are reserved for Handicapped parking only. We need your help
and understanding to get our students to school and home safely. Students may be quickly dropped off in the tenth street
driveway, but no cars are allowed in the driveway after school. In addition, we ask that you refrain from bringing your pets to
school when you drop off and pick up your children. This poses a safety as well as a personal liability issue. When you are
parking on the south playground for events, please make sure you are leaving the exit open for cars to leave. Finally, a reminder
that there is no playground supervision after school. Students need to be leaving the premises by 3:15. Thank you for your
cooperation in helping to keep our Webster students safe.
