Note: Parents should make every effort to ensure that students do not miss school. Students who leave early before or return late after spring, winter, or summer breaks will not be excused unless there is a justifiable reason such as: personal illness, quarantine, medical appointments, funeral services, religious reasons, and court appearances. The school must be informed of these reasons in a timely way with an Absence Form or note signed by the parent (or a doctor’s note for medical absences three days or more). High school students are responsible for getting their teachers to sign the Absence Form in order to excuse their absence.
