Hopefully, every child likes to come to school.

There are times, however, when a child must miss because of illness or personal situations. 

In the event of an absence, much of the work done on the day the student was absent will be saved for him or her to complete at home. Time will be allotted for graded papers missed to be done at school within a few days following the student’s return to school.


In an attempt to lessen the load, you may request that the daily work be sent home with another student in the school. Of course, parents are always welcome to pick up their child’s work at the end of the day.


Remember that your child needs an excuse for each absence.    This excuse should be dated and given to the teacher upon the student’s return to school.
