Guidelines - Excused absences & tardies must have a verifiable note submitted within three days of absence. Examples of excused absences & tardies include - medical, death or funeral for immediate family, court appointments, school authorized activities and other absences pre-approved by an administrator.


Homework Requests - If your child is absent for an extended time, view the Homework Instructions sheet to see how your child can make up their work.
