In order for the absence to be properly excused, the information we need to gather is:
- Your child’s name
- Your child’s teacher
- The date/dates of the absence
- The reason for the absence, i.e. illness, appointment, family emergency, etc.)
- Your name and relationship to the child
- A phone number where you can be reached during school hours
A pre-planned absence form must be completed in advance of an expected absence and will support effective communication between the school and home regarding student attendance. The completed form must be turned into the school office three days prior to the absence.
