Excused Absences

Students who need to be excused during the school day must sign out at the main office before 8:15 AM. A note or a phone call from a parent/guardian must accompany this request. If a student returns to school the same day after signing out, the student must sign in at the main office.

Adult Students

Students who are 18 years of age may pick up an Adult Student Status form. When the form is completed and returned to the school the student may provide their own information concerning absences.


When possible, please book appointments (i.e. dentist, doctor) outside of school hours.
