An excused absence occurs when a student is not present at school or at a school-endorsed activity, but is temporarily excused from attendance (must be with a written parental note provided when the student returns to school).
An unexcused absence occurs when a student is not present at school or at a school-endorsed activity, without acceptable cause.
Make Up Work
It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian and student to arrange with his or her teacher to make up all academic work missed. Reasonable - within 5 school days - make-up opportunities shall be offered. Failure to do so can result in adverse academic consequences.
Please see our school's handbook for further explanantion of each. To assist, our district has created the attached slip for your convenience.
