Attendance Policy

 

In the event of a necessary absence, a parent/guardian must call the attendance line and report the absence by 9:00 a.m. Include student’s name, date of absence, reason for absence and parent/guardian contact number. This notification does not automatically excuse the absence.

 Doctor visits or other circumstances require a note from them detailing the time to be excused, reason for leaving, and approximate time of return. The student will be excused from class and may leave class when the parent/guardian arrives at the office.

Upon return, the student must provide a doctor’s note verifying the appointment. Parents are strongly encouraged to schedule appointments to the greatest degree possible outside of the school day in order to minimize academic impact. 

Excused Absences:

  • Illness: fever, contagious disease, illness rendering student to bed rest (Doctor’s note required after the third day of absence)
  • Injury: resulting in temporary physical disability (Doctor’s note required)
  • Mental Disability: (Doctor’s note required)
  •  Emotional Disability: (Doctor’s note required) 
  • Family Emergency
