Parent/Guardian Responsibility

  • Students are expected to clear an absence within two school days after they return to school. Absences must be cleared by a parent/guardian phone call or a note explaining the absence. Absences not cleared after two school days will be considered a truancy unless approved by an administrator. The school may initiate contact with the parent/guardian if the absence is not cleared.

    The parent/guardian and student should make every effort to schedule non-school appointments outside school hours. If this is unavoidable, the student must bring a parent/guardian note or have the parent/guardian call the Attendance Office to obtain a “Permit to Leave” prior to departure. Students leaving without a “Permit to Leave” form will be considered truant.
