Students who will be absent three or more consecutive days for pre-arranged family trips, college visits, etc., must complete the Extended Absence Form and have it approved by the administration, prior the absence. Once approved it will be sent to your teachers to provide a list of the missing assignments. Once all teachers have completed their portion the form will be emailed to the student and parent/legal guardian. Unless prior arrangements have been made with the teachers, students are not given any extra time to make up missed work. Work is due immediately upon returning to class. Any work on or during the absence must be turned in before the student leaves unless other plans are made with the teachers.
WIHI strongly discourages long planned absences or extended school vacations into lengthier holidays. Our records indicate that students ability to maintain good grades is impacted by extended absences. Each school day is important. Consideration will be given to international trips with education components.
