Extended Illness

The parent/guardian of any student who is absent due to illness or injury for more than three days should notify the health office and contact their child’s guidance counselor. No absences are excused without a written doctor’s note. Students are encouraged to check individual teacher websites and to email teachers for information about any missed assignments. Upon the student’s return to school, every effort will be made to assist him/her in making up work which was missed due to excused absence.
