Excused Absences
1.  Excused Absence for Medical Reasons: Absences for which a student requires attention from a health care professional (i.e. doctor, dentist, psychiatrist, etc. . .) will always be excused when a note from the professional is provided to the school.
2.  Parent Note Excused Absence--Maximum of 5 Parent notes per year.  

Unexcused Absence: Any absences beyond the five (5) parent excused absences, except those supported by documentation from a health care provider, are considered unexcused

Tardy: A student is tardy if he/she arrives after the start of the school day or leaves before the end of the school day, missing no more than three (3) hours. Arriving late or leaving early for a medical appointment can be an excused tardy as long as documentation from a medical professional is provided.
