Absences and Tardy Rules
Starting on October 20, 2014, we ask that you send a note of absence not only when your child misses a day of school but also when they check in or out. Even if you come in the office to get them or drop them off, please write a note for the classes they miss. Verbal communication will no longer be a means of having their absence excused. There must be written communication, signed and dated. Students have 3 days from the date of absence to bring a parent note in and 5 days from date of absence to bring a medical note.
Also, when writing the notes, please add your child’s LAST NAME along with their first.
