• Excused Absence

    The following are valid excuses for absences and tardiness.

    Participation in school-approved activity            Illness, Health Condition, Medical Appointment
    Family Emergency                                                   Religious Purposes
    Court/Judicial Proceedings                               Pre-arranged Absences
    Assignments and/or activities not completed because of an excused absence or tardiness may be made up in the manner provided by the teacher.  It is the students responsibility to check with teachers 

    Verification of an absence requires:

    • The date of absence(s)
    • The reason for absence(s)
    • A note from a parent/guardian explaining the absence and signed by the responsible adult


    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 unexcused.
