  • Please send a written note with your child when they return to school.
  • The Family Vacation Form should be turned in to the school office no later than one week prior to your child’s absence.
  • A child will be recorded as absent a half day if he/she arrives at school after 10:00 AM or leaves prior to 2:00 PM.
