A Dream Deferred Any absence must be documented by a parent note. Absences without a note are considered unexcused. Please send a note with your student on the day they return. We do not send assignments in advance for vacations, funerals or illness. Students are responsible for checking the absent work folder and the website for work missed during their absence.
More Important Info Please bring an excuse anytime you are absent or tardy from a doctor. Inform us of any contagious symptoms. Medicine is dispersed at the office only with approved forms. (This includes over the counter products) TDap Booster must be received before the beginning of school.
