A note from the doctor or dentist should be submitted to the school office immediately following a medical appointment relating to an absence.
An unexcused absence is defined as any absence:
Students Leaving Early
For a student to be released prior to regular dismissal time:
Class begins at 8:00 am. Any student that arrives after 8:00 am, must first report to the office for a tardy slip. Students who arrive after 10:00 am, will be marked absent for the day unless they can provide documentation of a medical appointment that morning.
No makeup work will be approved for absences resulting from activities of youth organizations such as scouts, Young Life, church, or other youth organizations. Absences for family trips taken for pleasure or recreational purposes will also be denied makeup privileges.
P.E. & Clinic Requests
Notes requesting a student not participate in physical education (P.E.) should be submitted as a separate note directly to the PE teacher. Any information regarding illnesses, new medications, or special instructions should be given directly to the Nurse.
Additional information regarding attendance can be found in The Student Code of Conduct. If you have any questions regarding attendance, please contact Ashlie Seabolt in the Hyer office by e-mailing her at email@example.com or by calling 214-780-3304.
