Students are expected to be in class and ready to learn at the start of each school day. Any student not in their classroom when class begins will be considered tardy and appropriate consequences will follow. Please ensure students are dropped-off early enough to allow them to get to their classroom on time.


Sage International School considers students entering the classroom after the posted start time to be tardy. If a K-5 student arrives after school has started, the parent must enter the building with their student and sign their student in at the front desk. The tardy will be noted in Sage International’s attendance records.


It is imperative that you contact Sage to let us know if your student will be absent prior to 10:00 am on the day of their absence, and sign them in if tardy (if K-5) or contact us if 6-12. Please email or call our attendance message line at 208-343-7243 and press 1. Please provide the following information:

  • Student’s first and last name, Grade
  • Estimated date of return
  • Reason for the absence
    •   If due to an appointment, please provide a note from the provider’s office to excuse the absence.

If the school does not hear from a student’s parent or guardian by 10:00 am (for K-5) or 4:00 pm (for 6-12) you will receive an automated call via the emergency contact number you provided to let you know that your student has been marked absent and that you need to contact the school via the email or phone number above with the reason for their absence.

Please see our handbook for more details about attendance.

Sage follows the CDC’s Recommendation regarding isolation for Covid-19, please reference their website for guidance on attendance if your student has tested positive.
