Hello Murray Families!

Murray now has the option for parents/guardians to report student absences by email!

If your student will be absent, send a message to: murrayattendance@spps.orgPlease include your student’s name and the reason for the absence and we will mark it in the attendance system.

You can also use the email address to notify the office that your student will be picked up early. When we receive the email, we will write an Excuse to Leave the Building for the student. The student should stop by the office in the morning and pick up that pass. The student will meet you in the office at the time indicated on the pass.

As a reminder, Minnesota Law lists the following absences as excused/unexcused:
  • LAWFULLY EXCUSED ABSENCES

    • Sickness - too sick to be in school
    • Medical Appointments
    • Religious Holidays
    • Extreme Family Emergencies (house fire, death, etc.)
    EXAMPLES OF UNEXCUSED ABSENCES
    • Overslept
    • Missed school bus
    • Suspended from school bus
    • Staying home to babysit
    • Weather too hot/cold
    • Family vacation

    Please let us know if you have any questions!
