Templeton frequently asked questions

How do I report an absence?
Call (262) 246-6477 x4150 by 8 a.m. A written excuse is needed upon returning to school.

Cell phone use
Students with cell phones should have them turned off and kept in their lockers. If a student needs to call home, they may come to the front office to make a phone call. If your child doesn’t feel well, they should go to the Health Room (not call or text parent) and the supervisor there will call the parent.

My child has an appointment and needs to leave school early, what do I do?
Your child should bring a note to the guidance office before 1st hour indicating what time you will pick them up and who is picking them up. A pass will be issued. Please come in to the front office to pick up the student, so that we may know who is picking the child up.

My child needs to ride someone else’s bus for one day, what do I do?
Your child should bring a note (written and signed by you, the parent) to the office before 1st hour indicating the date, your child’s grade and name of the student whose bus your child will be riding on. A pass will be issued and your child should pick it up from the main office at lunch.

My child needs to take medicine at school, what do I do?
Complete the Medication Permission form, found on the district website or get a form from the health room. Parents must bring medicine to school – it cannot be sent with your child. Doctors need to sign the Medication Permission form if it is a prescription.

My child needs to be excused from Fitness Education, what do I do?
Get a written medical excuse from your physician and send it to the health room.

How do I sign up for clubs/sports/activities?
Students hear information during A.M. announcements for sign up dates and times. Information is available on the daily written announcements on the TMS webpage. Sign up forms are located in the office. Each activity requires a separate form and payment check. Instead of a meeting, parents are required to view the athletic Power Point found on the Templeton home page of the district website. All sports will require the concussion and head injury information form/2013 Wisconsin Act 93 permission form. This is only required one time per school year.
