Religious Absences

 

 

Religious Holidays

Students may be excused from school when celebrating Holy Days for their particular religion.

The following documentation must be provided:

(1)  the student's name

(2) which day(s) the student will be gone

(3) the name of the Religion that they are a part of

(4) the name & date of the Holy Day they are observing

(5) where this event will be held, IF it is an out of town event, and they are requesting travel days

(6) note must be signed by the parent

ALSO - student must make up all missed work.

 If the above information is turned in within 3 days after return to campus and the absence is coded "REL" then the absence does not count against a student for attendance credit.

Holy days are not church holidays, festivals, meetings or camp. A Holy day is a tenant of the whole Faith, not a celebration of a particular church.
