ABSENCE VERIFICATION FORM
The new Absence Verification form will be completed by a parent and returned to school for the days that the student is absent. Parents may download the Absence Verification form, located in the right column of the Homepage. If parents do not have internet access, homeroom teachers will give the student, returning to school from being absent, a printed copy of the Absence Verification form to take home to the parent. The student is held responsible to give the form to the parent who will complete it and have it returned to school to the homeroom teacher. Should a form not be completed or the reason for absence does not fall within the school district guidelines as an excused absence, the days missed will be marked 'unexcused.' Should you need assistance in getting an Absence Verification form, please call 492-6136.
