Please be aware that extended vacations that lead to absences before or after the holiday break are considered unexcused. If you or your child will be missing school due to vacation, please contact the attendance secretary to notify the school. Once again, it is unexcused, but your notification ensures that the absence is not considered a truancy.
Please also understand that the recent calendar changes have shifted our final exams to before the holiday break. Exams for this year are scheduled for December 18, 19, and 20th. If your student is going to be absent due to a vacation prior to the break they will be missing their final exams. It is up to each teacher to decide if they will give the final exam earlier or later. They do have the option of not giving the exam due to the unexcused absence.
We understand the circumstances that sometimes require us to take extended vacations, but please understand that students absent from school are not learning.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school at 847-888-5100.
