All students who are present during part of the day and plan to miss a class or classes are required to report to the office and obtain a blue pass. Parents and guardians must contact the office by phone, in person or with a note. Failure to use the procedure will cause the absence to become unexcused. Contact by parents at a later time after the absence has occurred will not change the absence to an excused absence.
Example: A student leaves campus for lunch and does not return. Result: The absence is unexcused. The student’s parent calls later in the day or the following day to excuse. Result: The absence remains unexcused .
Students who leave the building during the day without a blue pass will be regarded as truant.
