absent noteWe need a written absence excuse from a parent or guardian when a child has been absent from school.

When your children return to school after being absent, they should bring a note of explanation signed by the parent or guardian that includes:

  1. Name of the child
  2. Date(s) of absence 
  3. Reason for the absence  

According to state law, the only excused absences are for illness, medical treatment, bereavement, and some legal commitments.

Family vacations, religious holidays/commitments, or personal business are considered unexcused reasons for absence.
