Please call me if you have any questions regarding your child's attendance!
Here are a couple of reminders from our handbook:
When a student is absent from school, the student - UPON ARRIVAL OR RETURN TO SCHOOL - must bring a note signed by the parent that describes the reason for the absence.
Also, upon returning to school, a student absent for more than 3 consecutive days because of a personal illness must bring a statement from a doctor or health clinic verifying the illness or condition that caused the student's extended absence from school. Otherwise, the student's absence may be considered unexcused and, if so, would be considered to be in violation of compulsory attendance laws.
I appreciate all of you who send these absence excuses so promptly. I try my best to get them coded the same day I receive them. However you may not see that the change has been made right away.
Go Tigers and Tigerettes!
