Every year we have an increasing number of families taking absences during the school year. Questions always are asked about what the school or teacher responsibility is during these absences. We respect parents and families rights to remove their children from school for extended periods either for vacation or work related challenges. However, unless it is an illness or death in the family, these absences are generally 'unexcused.' We have attached a handbook that provides some clarification on what parents responsibilities are as well as the school, plus some helpful tips for parents if you are planning an absence during the school year. I hope this helps!
