Reporting Absences

The student's parents will be notified by telephone contact by the middle of the school day in which absences occurred.      

 

Requirements for Absences:

District policy requires written documentation for all absences. After ten (10) days, a doctor’s note may be requested for additional absences.

 

E-mail the child’s name, teacher’s name, and reason for your child’s absence to Becky-David Attendance


Steps to follow when absent are:

1.    Parents should call the school each day the student misses and send a note to the teacher stating the reason for absence (851-4307). All absences will be checked by the office.

 

2.    A doctor's statement will be required for an extended illness.

 

3.    If your child cannot go out for recess, he/she must bring a signed note stating the reasons for being excused. Frequent or extended absences from recess or PE may require a doctor's statement.

 

4.   Make-up work will be given to the students when he/she returns from the absence. The student will be given sufficient time to complete the assignments.  Work may be sent home if a teacher is notified of an extended absence.

 

5.    Please schedule vacations, doctors' appointments, etc. during scheduled breaks.
