If your child is going to be absent from school, please contact the office before 8:00 am. You can also utilize the following link to email the attendance office to report an absence: https://www.rutherfordschools.org/union/about-union-school/reporting-absence/
If we do not receive a phone call, we will send home an automated message asking that you contact the school immediately.
Please ensure your child has their lunch before leaving home to prevent disruption of instructional time. If you must bring in your child’s lunch, please write their name on their lunch bag and drop it off in the drop box in the front of the school before 10:00 am.
