In the event of a student absence, parents should call the school office (preferably between 7:30am  and 8am) to report that their child will not be attending school that day. In the event of an unplanned absence, students should contact a classmate to acquire their homework assignments.

If a student absence is anticipated, the student should also request assignments prior to the absence no later than 3 school days prior to the planned absence. It is the responsibility of the student to make up all missed assignments after any absence, planned or unplanned. Each faculty member will have an established make-up policy, including required deadlines, for missed work.

Excused and Unexcused

A student may have no more than 6 unexcused absences in each semester, for a total of 12 unexcused absences throughout the school year. Excused absences include absences of a medical, health, or academic nature, and must be verified by the parent/guardian. We extend to parents and guardians the same honor code as we do our students regarding verification of the nature of such absences.
