Phone Call Policy

You must call Kenwood School if your child will be absent!

If parents do not call school to indicate that a student will be absent and the reason, your child will be considered truant for that day. Likewise, a new automated phone system will call your home that evening to remind you that your child has a truant and unexcused absence. Hammond parents are vulnerable to legal prosecution if truancy becomes excessive. Avoid all that! Make sure your child is in school every day, or give us a call!
