Legal excuses for absences are illness, doctor appointments, school-related activities approved by staff, pre-arranged absences, and if a child has been suspended or expelled. If your child is absent please call the attendance office the morning of the absence at 330-7619. (Messages should be left if the phone is not answered) Absences must be verified within two school days by telephone contact or a note from parent/guardian. Schoolwork makeup for excused absences will be given based on the number of days missed.
Verification of an absence requires:
Pre-arranged absence: All pre-arranged absences must have the approval of the student’s teachers and building administration. The absence must be cleared by the attendance office three days prior to the absence.
Failure to verify absence(s) within the three-day limit will result in the absence(s) being classified as truancy.
