When your child is absent OR you know he/she will be absent, it is the parent's responsibility to contact the school. At MacArthur, we have an 'Absence Phone Line' where you can leave a message indicating the absence.
Simply call (714) 568-7788 and leave your child's first and last name, the date of the absence, the reason for the absence, and your name and relationship.
Here's a sample message:
"Hi, my child, Mickey Mouse, will be absent on Thursday, February 18th, due to illness. My name is Walt Disney and I am Mickey's father. Thank you."
