If it is for multiple days, each date must be listed. If something comes up and you need to call the office the day of, you must do so before 2:00 PM, otherwise your child will be sent home on his/her normal transportation mode. The person calling/ sending the note must be on the child’s list of emergency contacts.

Absences- all absences must have a written note. Parents/Guardians my write up to five notes per semester to excuse absences for illness, beyond that, it must be excused by a doctor’s note. W.V. Code defines all other excused absences in WV Code, Chapter 18, Article 8, which is provided in your child’s assignment book. Regardless of the reason, a written note must be provided for each absence, otherwise it is unexcused.

The Make-Up Work policy is listed under county policy 8004. Upon returning to school, students are given one full day for each absence plus one day for excused absences. (Total number of absences + one day.) We encourage you to request work ahead of time if it is a planned absence and give your child’s teacher at least two school days to prepare work ahead of time for a planned/ future absence.
