Excused and Unexcused Absences.
When absence from school is necessary, students are requested to have one of their parents notify the school by telephone early in the morning on the day of the absence to explain the circumstances. Absences due to illness or because of an emergency will be considered excused. Absences for extended vacations or other reasons such as over-sleeping, missing the bus, staying home to study, etc. will be considered unexcused.
