Excused Absences

Students are responsible for making sure all absences are cleared through the Attendance Offic . Absences should be cleared by a phone call from the parent or guardian. The Attendance Office telephone number is 742-2538. Notes and phone calls regarding absences should contain the following information: Student’s full name, date(s) of absences, reason for absence(s), telephone number where a parent or guardian can be contacted, and the signature on the note of the parent or guardian. Truancies cannot be cleared after they occur. Absences must be cleared within 24 hours of their occurrence or they will be considered truancies. No make-up work is permitted for truancies.

Parents or legal guardians leaving their student(s) under another adult’s supervision while they are out of town need to call the Attendance Office prior to their departure.
