Student Work Policy for Absences

We know that life doesn't always happen during our breaks and there are family events and vacations that happen while school is in session.   We want you to enjoy those times.  Please know that the instruction that happens in the classroom cannot be made up with worksheets and packets.  We do our best to bring your child up to speed when they miss school, but missing what happens in the classroom will affect student learning.  


With that in mind, please know that we will do all that we can when your child returns to catch them up.  If teachers can set aside something done on paper, they will do so to give to your child upon return.  However, teachers cannot gather things for your child to take with you to do while you're away.  This is not how instruction works and it puts a big burden on teachers to try and make that happen.  


Please let us know, both at the front desk and with your teacher, when your child will miss school, however, know that teachers will not be providing work to take with you.  They will do all they can to catch them up after the fact.  


A student is considered habitually truant if he or she has 4 absences or more in one month or 10 absences or more during the school year. For more information, please visit:
