When a student is unable to attend class due to reasons beyond his/her control (e.g. illness, accident), the school should be notified immediately as to the reason for his absence and the probable length of the absence. If the student notifies the school orally, he/she must bring a written statement upon return. He/she must also notify the teachers involved about the inability to attend. Absences of more than three days due to illness require a written doctor’s excuse. It is the student’s responsibility to make up work or assignments missed through illness or absence.
