HOMEWORK REQUEST LINE 412-369-5454 Homework Requests for Short Term Absences: 2 to 4 days When a student is absent two (2) or more days parents should call in the morning of the third day of absence to request homework assignments. This is how the Homework Request Line works: On the third morning of your child’s absence, if the classwork and homework assigned on the absent days are desired, you must call 412-369-5454, the homework request line, by 8:30 a.m. To avoid busy lines, call as early as possible prior to 8:30 a.m. If a call comes in after 8:30 a.m., your request will be delayed until the following day.
