EAST LIMESTONE TRADITIONAL STUDENTS ONLY:
If you have a student who is quarantined and needs a device, please contact East Limestone to make that request ASAP!
When a student is absent due to COVID-related issues, he/she should be completing his/her assignments DAILY! Assignments are due on the date that the teacher stipulates or when the student returns. Assignments MUST be submitted on time. The exception is if the student is positive for COVID and is unable to work due to the sickness and/or the parent has contacted the teacher(s) communicating any extenuating circumstances.
Traditional Students Attendance Reminders: Upon being absent, students are required to submit documentation within 3 school days for the absence to be coded as EXCUSED. Parents may write a note for up to 10 days per year. (See Student Handbook pg. 17 for more information.) Additionally, parents may obtain documentation from a doctor, dentist, etc. Excessive UNEXCUSED absences from school may result in a loss of academic credit and/or a referral to legal authorities.

Food for Thought:
Ways to stay In-The-Know:
-Talk to your student! Chances are, they know more than they are sharing.
-Email your student's teachers and/or administrators
-Call your student's teachers, administrators, and/or our WONDERFUL office staff
(Make sure you keep your contact information up-to-date so we can give you a call back!)
-Request a conference. Sometimes face-to-face is the best way to have a conversation.
-If your student's teachers offer REMIND - sign up!
-Check out our school's website - eastlimestonehigh.org
-Make sure to look at the "Natives' News" on our website for up-to-date and future information.
-Follow East Limestone on Twitter - @limestone_east
-School-wide All Calls
-Get an Inow/Chalkable account set up
-Ask your student if his/her teachers are using Google Classroom, have them SHOW you.
-Check out the East Limestone PTO page on Facebook. Please remember that we are a FAMILY. Keep it positive. We are working hard to create, not only, a safe, loving, learning environment for our students, but also, a working environment where our teachers and staff are as supported as our students. Again, if you have a question, just ask.
