How to Report an Absence from School

Parents or guardians are asked to notify the school when their daughter or son will be absent from school, preferably on the day of the absence. Only school officials have the authority to excuse an absence. Generally, absences, which are reported on the same day of the actual absence, are considered as excused. Absences reported after the day of the absence, but within 48 hours are considered as unexcused, the student is subject to  disciplinary  action. Other absences are considered as cuts or truancy, which will result in immediate disciplinary action. Examples of excused absences are: illness, death in the family, court appearance, and/or religious observance.
