If a student brings a parent note to explain the absence, it must be shown to classroom teachers and then submitted to the Main Office for recording in the attendance data-base. Students are responsible for obtaining and completing all missed work related to any absence.
An extended absence form must be completed and submitted by the student to the Assistant Principal for absences of three or more consecutive days. These forms are available from the Main Office or website and must be submitted before the absence occurs.
