                       Items  Dropped off for Students   

If your child has forgotten an item at home,  our office assistants will help get those forgotten items to students when you bring them to school.  Please understand that in order to minimize interruptions to the classrooms,  we will be delivering forgotten items only during the first 10 minutes of each class period.   Thank you for your continual support of the great learning taking place at Eagle Middle School!

Attendance Information

The laws of the state of Idaho require all youth to attend school regularly.  Joint School District No. 2 defines regular attendance as missing NO MORE than SIX (6) days per semester.

Proper documentation provided by a medical or dental office and/or legal verification for any absences must be turned in within five days of the absence to waive the absence.

Parent phone calls inform the school that the student is absent, but does not waive the absence.

All absences except extraordinary and waived absences are counted in the six allowable days per semester.

ATTENDANCE LINE

Please call 208-350-4256 if your child is absent.

You can call this number any time, 24 hours a day!

Please come to the office to sign your child in if they are tardy.
