Absence Reporting / Policy

  • Not Coming to School Today?

    Absences must be reported via the attendance line at 754-323-5800 or written note. The report must come from a parent and give the date(s) of the absence and the reason for it. Parents MUST report these absences within two days following the absences. A note can be sent either the day before or not later than the second day after the absence. Attendance Policy 5.5

    • All students' absences must align with the eight (8) reasons allowed for absences, as outlined in the Attendance Policy and in the Code of Student Conduct.
    • Parents must state reason (from approved list) for absence when they call in or write a note to report a student's absence.
    • Absences can only be excused if they correspond with one of the eight (8) allowed reasons.

    If a child is absent, he/she may have additional homework in order to make up classwork. According to School Board of Broward County guidelines, a child has 2 days for each day absent to complete all make-up work. In order to give teachers adequate preparation time, requests for homework should be made 24 hours prior to material pick up.
