For reporting a student absence:
FHSD SchoolMessenger Automated Attendance Calls
Francis Howell School District implemented the SchoolMessenger
notification system to make automated calls to parents and guardians
regarding weather-related school closings and school emergencies. We are
now expanding the use of the notification system to make attendance
calls for students that are absent from school.
your child is absent from school, you will receive an automated phone
call, text message and/or email (depending on your contact preferences)
through the SchoolMessenger system. The system allows our schools to
log attendance and notify parents of any unverified or unexcused
absence in the timeliest manner possible. Please note, parents should
still call the school attendance office to report your
child/children's absence from school anytime they will be absent or late
