Prearranged Student Absences:

If a student has an extra-special occasion coming up that will keep him/her out of school, they may ask for an advance absence permit. The student must bring a note from their parents requesting that they be excused and give the reason before they expect to be absent. The note is to be taken to the main office and a prearranged absence slip obtained. The prearranged absence slip is then taken to each of the student’s teachers who will sign the slip and provide homework assignments. After all teachers have approved the absence, the student returns the slip to the main office. Final approval will be given by the principal. IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO WORK OUT AN ARRANGEMENT WITH EACH TEACHER FOR WORK MISSED. The limit on the above is 5 days per semester. Prearranged excused absences for hunting or family vacation are limited to 5 days per semester. Days in excess of 5 will be classified as unexcused absences. (Requests for extensions must have prior approval of the principal - satisfactory academic standing and the student’s attendance are both important factors considered).
