Report an ABSENCE

Option 1:  For general, daily absences:

Please complete this Google Form to report your child's absence.  This form will alert the school of your child's absence and will serve as an absence note for your child's return.  You are not required to send a separate note after completing this form.  If your child has been absent for multiple days due to illness, a doctor's note may be required.

If your child is demonstrating any Covid-like symptoms, or has tested for Covid-19, please note that information on this form.  If your child has tested positive and is therefore required to quarantine (5 days), please note the date that symptoms began and/or the date of the positive test as well as the date that you anticipate your child returning to school, assuming they remain symptom-free.  

Option 2: For Extended/Discretionary absences, meaning travel or other non-illness-related absences:

Complete this form regarding your child's extended or discretionary absence.

FOR ABSENCES OF UP TO 3 DAYS, the principal may determine whether the absences will be
lawful/excused or unlawful/unexcused. This completed form should be submitted to the principal in
advance.

FOR ABSENCES IN EXCESS OF 3 DAYS, the principal in consultation with the administrative directors will
determine if the absences will be lawful/excused or unlawful/unexcused. If the request is for 15
consecutive days or more, the written request should be submitted 2 weeks in advance.

STUDENTS  WITH UNLAWFUL ABSENCES OF 10 CONSECUTIVE  SCHOOLS DAYS OR More- will be withdrawn from school and may be allowed to re-enroll, provided they meet enrollment requirements, upon their return.

STUDENTS RETURNING FROM LAWFUL ABSENCES- have an equal number of days to complete make-up work.

For an absence that will extend past 10 days, please contact Mrs. Castaneda, in the front office, for additional assistance (lisa_castaneda@hcpss.org or 410-880-5890).
