How can I contact parents regarding absences?

When there is a student absent how can I quickly add in notes and log the call I make to the parent?

There is a dedicated section for this on the main dashboard. On the right hand side of the school dashboard you will see all the live absences for that day. If you hover over an absent student you will notice their main contact details will appear so that you can easily contact their parents without having to click any buttons. You will also see a “+ call log” button. Click this button to open up the CALL/LOG pop up box where you can log phone calls, add notes, set reminders and set the priority of the absence.
