Parents/guardians who cannot call must write a note explaining the reason for the absence. The note should be written by the parent in its entirety and signed.

Students who need to leave school early for medical purposes (doctor or dental appointments) must bring a note to the Attendance Office before leaving school. The note must be written by the parent in its entirety. The note should include:

  • the requested dismissal time;
  • the reason the student needs to leave early;
