Pre-Arranged Absence Form


Family vacations are important for bonding and nurturing a whole child, but too many absences, excused or unexcused, can keep students from succeeding in school. Please do what you can to plan family trips during scheduled school breaks. If you plan to be absent, please contact the front office to fill out a Pre-Arranged Absence Form. Per district policy, absences will be excused if the student has been present for 95% or more of the time during the semester AND if the student has no academic concerns. If your student will be gone for more than 5 days, you must turn in the pre-arranged absence form at least two weeks prior to the leave of absence. A meeting may be scheduled to determine what work will need to be completed before, during, or after the absence. The excusal of future prearranged absences may depend on whether or not students met the expectations on prior prearranged absences.
