What do I do when my child is absent?

Posted by:

Parents are responsible for reporting absences and providing the reason for the absence in writing when the child returns to school. Full-day and partial-day absences can be excused for a number of reasons, including illness, appointments with health care professionals, religious holidays, school sponsored activities, death in the family, and court appearances.  Please send in a note when your child is absent.  Parents can excuse up to 6 absences per semester without a doctor's note.  Doctors are able to excuse an unlimited amount of absences.
