Absence Verification

When a student returns to school after an absence, a parent or guardian must provide a written excuse. This excuse must be for one of the permissible reasons for absence in order for the absence to be excused. Excuses must include the student’s full name, grade, absence date, reason of absence, and the parent/guardian signature. Parental excuses are to be submitted to the attendance office from 7:20 until 7:40 a.m. each day. If a student does not turn in a parental excuse by the third day following an absence, the absence will be coded unexcused/unlawful.

All Technical Career Center students must present parental excuses to SAHS and to the Career Center.
