When it is necessary for a student to be absent from school, a parent/guardian should call the Attendance Office to report the absence. All absences are unexcused until a note is received from a doctor or parent. In order to excuse the absence, a note must be received within three (3) days of the student’s return to school. Notes should include the following information:
- Student Full Name
- Date of Absence
- Reason for Absence
- Parent/Guardian signature
- Attach doctors note when applicable
Three (3) or more unexcused absences may result in court action. Parents/guardians may fax notes directly to the Attendance Office (our fax number is listed above); you are also encouraged to give our fax number to your doctor’s office and request that they fax us a doctor note excusing absences from school due to illness, injury, etc. Phone calls to report absences are a courtesy only and are not excused absences.
