    • PARENTS/GUARDIANS:  Do you have ATTENDANCE questions? Is your child needing to leave school early?  Please note, Free State does not have an intercom system that reaches individual classrooms.  Teachers are not always able to answer phone calls, or their phone is in a different area from where the class meets. Remember the caller must be Parent/Guardian.  An Emergency contact can pick up, but not excuse a student. Please see that the following procedures are done when your child(ren) must be released from school.

      • Call: 785-330-2503 or email:  fsattendance@usd497.org at least 2 hours prior to their departure. If you get Voicemail, please leave a message. This time window will ensure an appropriate pass is sent to the classroom.

      • Are they not feeling well?  They should go to the Nurse in Room 206.  She will contact you.  It is easier to release them from school from her office and less disruptive to classrooms.

      • Last minute appointments are rare, but do happen.  Please contact the attendance office as soon as you schedule an appointment. Teachers will not release your child from a text on their phone.  They rely on the office to notify them that a student is approved to leave class.
