Students are to bring official documentation for any absence from school, ie.; a written excuse (signed by a parent/guardian) OR a medical excuse within three days after returning to school. This documentation will be filed in the attendance office. Documentation does not erase absences; it only states why the student missed school.
Signing out during the school day
Should a student need to be signed out early, a signed note must be submitted to the office. NO phone calls are accepted.
If extended illnesses or medical conditions exist which may cause a student to miss over 10 days, the student’s parent should contact the guidance counselor to apply for homebound services. If a student not on homebound misses 10 or more classes, even for medicals, he/she must have special written permission from the principal to make them up.
- The only absences that DO NOT count against seat time are students on medical homebound and school related activities/sports during the school day.
To submit documentation for your absence please email excuse to email@example.com
Attendance for Remote Learning Days
On remote learning days, attendance will be determined by completion of teacher-assigned work within a designated time period (typically 5 days after the remote learning day).
