Preschool Screenings for 23-24 school year

See attached flier for Pre-K screening information

Mental Health Days and Parent Excused Days

Students are allowed six (6) parental absences (A-E) in one school year.  Five (5) of those can be Mental Health Days (M-E).  After six (6) parental absences, they will be marked as unexcused unless we receive a doctor’s note.  Please make sure your student is bringing in their doctor’s notes so you do not use up your parents' excuses.

Dr. Notes

Make sure that Doctor’s notes are being brought to the Jr High office after the appointment or if your student has been sick.  That note will change that absence in Skyward from a parent excuse - AE or an unexcused absence -AU to a doctor excuse - AD.
