Absence Procedures
Notification
If your student is ill or will be absent, please let the campus office know as soon as possible, preferrably before 8:30 a.m. Please let us know at least 24 hours in advance for planned absences (dentist appointments, etc.). Note: If your child is absent and we do not hear from you, we will make an attempt to contact you.
Elementary Students
Secondary Students

**A student will be considered absent if they arrive more than 15 minutes after the tardy bell has rung.

Notes
Each absence requires a note to be turned in to the campus office. Notes may be written and signed by parents or come from the doctor/dentist office. A note signed by the student, even with the parent's permission, will not be accepted unless the student is over 18 years of age.
If a note is not provided for a student absence, the following will occur:
  • The student's absence will be designated as unexcused. (The student has two days to bring a note).
  • If two days have passed and a note has not been provided, the absence will remain unexcused and the student will be subject to Saturday School.
