Please fill out this form if you intend to take your child out of school for an extended vacation or extra day off.
The school strongly discourages parents from planning vacations with their child beyond the time allotted by the school’s calendar. Absences immediately before a holiday or break may cause the student to miss important deadlines, presentations or tests. Families whose needs make such absences imperative must complete and submit the Extended Absence Form well in advance of the absence. Failure to request and obtain permission from the division head results in the absent student receiving zeroes for all homework and tests given during the time of absence. Your child should return to school with a plan for meeting with teachers and getting caught up.
