Message from the Principal
Pre- and Post-Holiday AbsencesIn order to maximize student/teacher contact and prevent teaching opportunities lost because of partial class attendance, absences immediately preceding and following a school holiday will not be approved for students and will be considered as unexcused absences. Semester exams/tests will not be given early.
Excused vs. Unexcused AbsencesStudents can receive Excused Absences provided that they:Provide a medical excuse within 24 hours of the absence and inform the school on the day of the absence that student is ill;Provide a written letter from a sports federation at least three days in advance of the absence, etc. in advance and the student completes a Planned Absence Form.All other absences are considered unexcused. In some cases, if a parent and student request permission for absences a minimum of 7 days before the planned absence, the Principal may excuse student absences for a maximum of 5 days in a given academic calendar year; however, no absences can be excused during exam days.
If you have any further questions or need for clarification; please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thank you - Maria InarraES Principal
