Attendance Secretary ~ Dennise Kettel
Permission to be absent from school for reason(s) other than illness may be granted when requested by the parent(s) and/or guardian(s) and agreed upon by the school authorities. Absences will be excused if they are for illness, medical/dental appointments, bereavement, family emergency, court appearances, or if the student has received an approval by the school for a pre-excused planned absence. School related activities requiring a student to miss class count as an excused absence.
Upon returning to school following an absence, students must clear their absence by either a note or a phone call from a parent and/or guardian stating the time and reason for the absence. Failure to clear this absence within two days may result in the appropriate level of discipline. These excused absences become a part of the student's attendance record. A pattern of absences or absences in excess of 10 days may result in school authorities requesting a doctor's verification of illness.
A student is considered unexcused when he/she misses all or part of a class period.
It is the student's responsibility to arrange for all make-up work following an excused absence. After a student has been absent for two days due to illness, you may request homework by contacting the Attendance Office. Please allow 24 hours for teachers to prepare homework materials. You may pick up any homework in the Main Office.
