Family-related absences must be verified by a phone call or note from a parent/guardian within two school days of the occurrence of the absence. These include the following: personal illness, family emergency or death in the family, medical/dental appointments, pre-arranged college visits, pre-arranged family business or vacation, major religious holidays, legal matters, and court appearances.
After an excused absence, the student assumes responsibility for obtaining assignments and completing make-up work within the time specified by the teacher. Parents/guardians and students should make every effort to schedule appointments outside the school day. Each day of absence in the four-block schedule represents a significant loss of instructional time.
Parents/guardians must call the Attendance Office at 952-988-4530 to report a student's absence. Please do NOT call the main office number to report an absence.
