Student absence from school may be excused in observance of a religious holiday. Within one week from the date of the absence, parents must contact the school by phone, email or by a handwritten note to the school that includes the following information:
- student’s name
- date or dates of absence
- reason for absence (religious observance)
- parent’s/guardian signature
This communication serves as verification of the student’s absence due to religious observance. Upon the student’s return to school, the student will be permitted to participate fully in the school program and without penalty due to his/her absence. It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with his/her teachers to complete all assignments in a timely manner.
