Leave of Absence

  • We strongly encourage the scheduling of appointments and family vacations to be outside of the school day. Attendance is the single most important factor in determining academic achievement. However, we honor “family time.” Absences of 3 days or fewer based on travel or significant lifetime events will be excused. Parent/guardian must submit a written request to the principal prior to the absence. Please be aware that these absences put students at academic risk due to the loss of instructional time. The student is expected to coordinate with the teacher a plan for the recovery of required learning, assignments, and assessments.

    Pre-arranged absences of four or more days must fill out a Leave of Absence form. If the absence will exceed 20 consecutive days, the student will be withdrawn. Leave of Absence forms can be obtained from the attendance office.
