Religious Holy Days


Holy Days are the only days which a student may be excused for religious reasons. The following documentation must be provided:  

(1) The student’s name

(2) Which day or days the student will be gone

(3) The name of the Religion that they are a member of

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

(5) Travel days must be requested if the observance is out of town

(6) Note must be signed by the parent

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.

Student is responsible for any missed school work.


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.
