What to Do When Your Child is Absent
If your child absent from school, you must do the following:
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and copy your child's teacher. (Nobody else needs to be copied on the email.)
- When your child returns to school, submit a paper note that includes an explanation of absence.
- If you child is absent for three or more days, a doctor's note is required.
Great Attendance Equals College Career Readiness
Of course, children should not attend school when they are sick, but please think twice before keeping your child out for any other reason.
