WELCOME to the 2019-2020 school year! Research has shown that your child's attendance record is one of the biggest factors influencing his or her academic success! So please make sure your child is in school every day unless they absolutely have to miss. Below are key points concerning attendance from the student handbook:
All absences require an excuse written by a parent/guardian or medical professional.
After the accumulation of three (3) or more unexcused absences, a referral may be made to Children and Youth Services and/or the District Magistrate.
EDUCATIONAL TRIP FORM:
Students who go on a trip during the school year are required to complete an educational trip form before departing: EDUCATIONAL TRIP FORM. One trip is permitted per school year. Without an educational trip form, those absences will be considered unexcused.
A maximum of ten (10) absences will be permitted during a school year. All absences beyond ten (10) days will require a medical excuse or the absence will be considered unexcused.
