Students will participate in standardized testing beginning April 16. Check the schedule to see when your child's grade level will be testing. Please avoid taking your child out of school when they are testing and make sure they get a good night's rest and a nutritious breakfast to help them do their best.

Automated Attendance Calls
Automated Attendance Phone Calls
Southgate recently started using an automated system for attendance calls. This system will send out phone calls and e-mails to parents of students whose absences have not been excused. Please note: if you do not call your child in sick before 10:30 a.m. or if your child is checked in after 10:30 a.m., you will receive an automated phone call. Just a reminder, to excuse your child’s absence, you must either call 222-5902 and leave a message or e-mail email@example.com. Please include your child’s name, room number, reason for absence and date of absence. You may also send a note in with this information when your child returns to school.
When your child is absent or late to school due to doctor’s or dentist appointments, we highly recommend you bring in a doctor’s note excusing the absence/tardy.
