Leave of Absence
We strongly encourage the scheduling of appointments and family vacations to be outside the school day/year. However, when parents/guardians have prior knowledge of an unavoidable upcoming absence of four or more days for their student (planned event, family trip, etc.), families should submit a note requesting a Leave of Absence. The student will then be given the Leave of Absence form that they will take to all of their teachers in order to get the class work that will be missed during the absence. The sooner teachers are aware of planned absences, the better they can prepare instructional materials for your student. We suggest giving teachers and our Attendance Office staff at least a week’s notice of the planned absence. There is no guarantee that parent requested absences (for reasons not on the list of excused absences) will be excused without this prior written notification.
