Extended Absences

In the event of any extended absence, other than illness, parents must provide a letter indicating the nature and duration of the absence.  The letter should be addressed to the principal, and delivered one week prior to the start of the absence.  All children are required by The School Act to attend school regularly.  Consistent attendance is essential to your child's academic success.

Extended "during the school year absences" affect student performance.  Since the materials, concepts and skills covered during class time are often prerequisites to future studies, an extended absence could affect your child's ability to meet curriculum expectations.

Please consider this carefully.  Teachers are not obligated to provide instructional materials for students due to extended absence.
