When a student is absent, please either email our Student Services Secretary, Jill Hack at firstname.lastname@example.org directly to report the absence, or turn in a written note to your child's homeroom teacher upon their return to school.
If a note is not received, the absence will remain documented as Truant. Please see the Secondary Student Handbook for more information.
Lawful Absence - An excused absence for any portion of the day under the following conditions:
Unlawful Absence (Truant) - An unexcused absence for any reason other than those cited as lawful are presumed as unlawful and may constitute truancy. Students unlawfully absent are considered truant:
Upon returning to school, the student must bring a written note signed by a parent/guardian citing the date of the absence and an explanation why the student could not attend school or have previously emailed our Student Services Secretary, Jill Hack at email@example.com
A student has two days from the date of the absence to bring in a note if Mrs. Wagner was never emailed the absence. If the note is received after the two-day grace period, the student will be given an unexcused pass for the absence and will remain truant.
Please send a note to school when your child needs an early dismissal so that we can plan for the early departure with the least amount of classroom disruption.
