Please be aware that unreported absences are considered unexcused. Please include the child’s name, grade and teacher, reason for absence, and expected duration. Doctor, dentist, and other necessary appointments should be made after school hours whenever possible.
Students On Vacation
It is expected that parents will make every effort not to schedule vacations during the school year to avoid interrupting their child’s educational program. Missing school because of a vacation is not a recognized legal absence and teachers are not required to prepare work for students. Students who do miss school will be allowed up to but no more than 5 days to make up work when they return. These students may want to take their books with them and/or contact a friend or the school website for assignments.
