All students are required to attend school every day. Each absence must be accounted for. On the day of an absence, the parent/guardian must make contact with the school (phone call, email, etc.) for each absence. When the student returns to school, he or she must provide a written excuse, signed by the parent/guardian, that contains the reason and date(s) of absence. Students who have been absent from school because of illness should not attend or participate in after-school social or athletic activities on the day(s) of illness. All work missed because of absence must be completed to the satisfaction of the teacher. It is the student’s responsibility to find out what he/she has missed during the absence and to arrange with the teacher for the completion of this work.
