Pre-approval from the principal is mandatory and should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the commencement of the trip. The destination must be stated and the educational activities that the student will be experiencing must be listed. If the trip is deemed not educational in nature, it will be not be approved and the days will be marked unlawful.
Absences from School
It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to submit, in writing, a reason for their child’s absence as soon as possible after the child returns to school. The middle school allows 3 days to submit an excuse after the child returns to school. After 3 days, the day will be marked unlawful. If an excuse is returned after the 3 days, it will be documented an excuse was submitted for that day(s) but it will still be marked unlawful. The attendance office sends reminders to submit excuses as well.
Please refer to the student handbook or School Board Policy #204 for more information about attendance.
