As parents and legal guardians, you are encouraged to schedule vacations at times other than on the days that our schools are in session. Cooperatively, we have an important role in stressing the value of education to our children. If, however, an application for a Waiver of Compulsory Attendance must be submitted, parents/guardians and students should plan carefully. Please plan ahead so that absences do not occur during important educational periods. The absence should not exceed 5 school days in length. It is imperative the application be submitted to a building principal two weeks in advance of the date for which approval is requested per Board Policy 204.
