return to school from an absence, parents should provide the school with a written note explaining the reason
for the absence. The note should include the date(s) of the absence, the reason(s) for the absence, and the
signature of the parent or of the doctor who treated the student. Students who check in late or check out early
must report to the school office and present a written note from their parent explaining their absence. If students
are frequently absent and tardy, the principal may ask the parent to provide more information, such as medical
documentation, about the absences, tardies, and early checkouts. (Handbook page 5)
