The school may request signed statements from a doctor for prolonged illness (5 or more consecutive school days). Doctor and dentist appointments should be made outside of school hours or during study periods if possible. All absences are part of the student’s permanent record and also apply to the attendance policy. The school does not recognize or approve of student “skip days.” Such days will be considered truancies and will have disciplinary consequences. Please contact the school's office for any questions you may have.
