If your child is absent from school, please notify the office before 8:30 a.m. Following an absence, a student shall bring a note to the teacher signed by a parent/guardian that specifies the date or dates and explains the reason for the absence. If the absence was due to a communicable disease, a doctor's certificate is to be brought to school the day the child returns (Please see Illness and Medications, in the Parent/Student Handbook). If your child must be dismissed because of an emergency, you may come to the school office to pick him/her up.
We do not expect that students will be absent for vacations when school is in session. The principal must be contacted in advance of any extended absences. Generally, school work will not be provided in advance of student absences. Missed school work will be made up upon a student’s return to school. Please note that the dynamic nature of teaching and learning that takes place in a classroom cannot be replicated through written assignments.
