What is considered an excused absence?
In order for an absence to be excused, the student must submit documentation within two school days of the absence to our attendance office. Student's parents may contact our Attendance Clerk to report an absence by email or phone. If student’s absence is due to a medical reason they are allowed up to 5 excused absences per semester without medical documentation. After 5 days, student must bring in medical documentation. The student should submit documentation from the doctors with the exact time and date of the appointment(s) or illness.
A pre-arranged absence must be submitted to the Principal 10 days in advance of the absence. Pre-arranged absences may or may not be excused. School district policy only allows 3 pre-arranged excused absences per year. The Principal reserves the right to deny the pre-arranged absence.

Dismissals are not permitted within the last hour of the school day.
