EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES

Students who have excessive absences or tardies as a result of unusual circumstances beyond their control may merit special consideration. These cases will be decided on an individual basis by the administration.

 

FAMILY TRIPS

Parents should check the school calendar prior to scheduling family trips. The administration discourages families from scheduling vacations during the school year. Parents should contact the academic counselor and the Director of Character Formation in writing or by e-mail to indicate specific reasons for the trip and excuse of absence; please do not contact the teacher directly. The Administration reserves the right to deny a request at any time during the school year and will evaluate cases on an individual basis.​When the parents or guardians are out of town, it is the parents or guardians responsibility to inform the school who will be calling in for absences and whom to notify in cases of emergency.  If permission is granted, the days absent are excused and apply towards the ten (10) days maximum allowable before credit may be denied or the grade reduced. It is the responsibility of the student to make up all class work, assignments, quizzes and tests. Failure to make up work may result in loss of credit. Failure of parents to notify the administration may result in the days absent being "unexcused". Students wi​th unexcused absences will not be allowed to make up missed work.Students will not be allowed to take semester exams early or late due to family vacations. 


FAMILY EMERGENCIES

The administration discourages families from scheduling vacations during the school year; however family emergencies can arise. Parents should contact the grade level academic counselor and the Director of Character Formation in writing to indicate specific reasons for the trip and request an excuse of absence.​
