Absences, late arrivals, and early departures that are planned in advance must be pre-approved via the form below at least 72 hours in advance. Please consult the CCS Calendar of Events when planning medical and dental appointments.
An absence, late arrival, or early departure will be determined to be excused or unexcused according to the guidelines set forth in the Student/Parent Handbook.
Excused Absence Make-Up Work Policy - The academic work of a student whose absence is excused may be made up for full credit. The make-up period for excused absences equals the length of the absence plus one day. To illustrate, if a student is absent on Monday and Tuesday and returns on Wednesday, the work is due the following Monday. Once the deadline for make-up work has passed, a 3% penalty will be applied for each day the work is late up to a maximum of 30% for grades K5-6 and a 5% penalty up to a maximum of 40% for grades 7-12.
Unexcused Absence Make-Up Work Policy - The academic work of a student whose absence is unexcused receives a letter-grade deduction. Additional late penalties follow the excused absence make-up work policy. Academic work missed due to truancy may not be made up.
I hereby accept full responsibility for my child’s absence, realizing that it interrupts his/her regular instructional program. I agree to take all necessary steps to make arrangements for the completion of all work missed.
