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 childâ€™s guidance counselor. No absences are excused without a written doctorâ€™s note. Students are encouraged to check individual teacher websites and to email teachers for information about any missed assignments. Upon the studentâ€™s return to school, every effort will be made to assist him/her in making up work which was missed due to excused absence.
