Thunder Bay Jr. High

Attendance Calls

As we head into the traditional cold and flu season and we are still struggling with Covid-19 we are finding that our attendance line is often very busy. Please try to be patient and understanding. If you want to excuse your student's absence there are two options.

  • Use ParentVUE to record/excuse an absence. The ParentVUE app is free, friendly, and easy to download. If you have not yet activated your ParentVUE account, click on the links below to get more info.
  • Leave a message on the attendance line. If needed, your call will be returned. Many calls do not require a return call but trust that your message will be heard and taken care of.

Are you looking for a way to view your students report card, or change emergency information, or contact your student's teachers?

ParentVUE can give you access to all these things and more. Click on the links below to learn more.  Every parent has an account. Have you activated your account yet?
