What do I do if my child is absent?

If your child is absent, please bring in a written excuse or doctor’s note as soon as possible to Mrs. Cordova. Once a student accumulates 10 unexcused absences, a truancy meeting will be set up with the school social worker, so please be sure to keep track of your students’ absences and deliver excuses in a timely manner. Please make sure that your child requests any make-up work they missed from their teachers.

Planned extended absences must receive principal approval. Please contact Mr. Shuler at least 2 weeks prior to the planned absence.
