One Call Now system to place calls to absent students’ households

Consistent school attendance is a crucial determining factor in student success. As such, Dallas High School is committed to students being to class on-time on a consistent basis. Beginning October 12th, Dallas High School will utilize the automated One Call Now system to place a call to absent students’ households on a daily basis. The calls will begin at approximately 9:30 AM. These calls are intended to improve communication between the school and families to both reduce truancy and to assist students upon their return to school. If there is a concern or what you believe to be an errant call, please contact the DHS’ main office at (570) 674–7251. In addition, please refer to the school website for the school’s absence policy and excuse forms. If you have any questions regarding this new procedure, or wish to opt out of the One Call Now system, please contact Principal Jason Rushmer directly. Thank you.
