Religious Holy Days


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