Special Messages

Attendance/ Absences - If your student is absent from school due to illness, please note that the attendance office is only able to medically excuse an absence if the doctor’s note includes the date/s. For example, if your student sees a doctor on Tuesday and is still sick Wednesday and Thursday; if the doctor’s note only excuses Tuesday, the attendance clerk can only excuse Tuesday. You would want to contact the doctor’s office and ask them to redo the note to include Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If you have questions please call or email Christie Meece.
