Please call the Attendance Line at 262-780-8083 or email WHMS Attendance ( by 8 am the day of the absence or early dismissal.  

When reporting your child’s absence from school, please provide the following information:

  1. Student First and Last Name

  2. Grade

  3. Reason for the absence.  If they are missing school because of illness, it will be important to let us know in your message ALL of your child’s symptoms and any physician confirmed diagnosis, such as Strep, Sinus Infection, Ear Infections, COVID-19 etc.  It will also be important to know if your child is staying home because they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

  4. Time and Reason of Dismissal (If you message is for dismissal).  If your child is leaving for a medical appointment, we encourage you to ask the medical office for an excuse for school.  Please have your student bring that to the office when they return.
