In a continued effort to ensure student safety, the district will be starting an automatic call-out system (similar to the phone voice messages that Mrs. Brinckman makes) that will alert you if your child is not in school that day. This system will go into effect for Shoemaker Elementary School on Monday, September 23rd.  You can anticipate to receive a phone call around 9:40 on days where your child is recorded absent at school.
