Staff Absentee Hotline

The information below is for teachers only. To report your child absent, please call the main office.

In the event you are unable to teach:

  • Please call the Staff Absentee Hotline 413-575-0742 as early as possible if it is after 3:30pm and you are requesting a leave for the following school day. Do not call or leave a message at the school during this time. 
  • If it is after 8:00am and you are requesting leave for the same school day, you must contact the main office (x114).
  • If you are planning to be absent in the future (ie. Field Trips, Rehearsals, Conferences, etc.) please submit a Leave Request Form. You can find the Leave Request Form in the PVPA website after logging in under the For Staff tab. You will see the link to the form under the User Menu. 
  • E-mail your lesson plans and an outline of your responsibilities for the day, including scheduled meetings with students, community members and your lunch duty, to substitute@pvpa.org.
