Parents are required to call the principal's office at (507) 835-5470 by 10 a.m. on the day a student is absent. Parents may also call the school number and leave a voice message 24 hours a day/7days a week concerning attendance. Notes are not accepted. Students are responsible to verify a "No call" within 24 hours of the absence in order to be excused. Waseca Jr & Sr High is in the process of setting up a notification system to alert parents of a student absence the same day.
