Pre-arranged Absence/Educational Trips

School personnel feel that each school day is important in providing your child with a full and appropriate education. Parents are strongly encouraged to plan all activities in such a way as to assure no conflict with the student’s attendance.

Parents who must request release of a student from school for a family activity are asked to make arrangements five (5) days in advance of the period of absence to obtain your children's schoolwork for the trip.

The period of absence may be excused provided that the following guidelines are met:

* The request is submitted at least five (5) days in advance of this absence.

* A form to be completed by the parent/guardian is available from the link below or from the attendance secretary.

* The student is performing acceptably in terms of his/her schoolwork. * The student has not been absent an excessive number of days prior to the time of this request.
