The first day an absent student returns to school, the parent/guardian must provide the school with a signed “Reason for Absence Note” that identifies the reason and date for each student absence.
You may print the PDF of the "Reason for Absence Note" below in whatever language you prefer or pick up a copy in the Attendance Office.
