Parent Information and Resources


If it is known/possible, be sure to fill out a Pre-Arranged Absence Form and submit it to Student Services - Prearranged-Absence.pdf

On the first day back to school after an absence, the student must bring a signed note from a parent or guardian stating the reason for the absence (parent’s notes CAN NOT exceed 3 days). The note is to be brought to the respective grade level Students Services Office and can only be written for the current semester. The absence will be classified “Excused” only if it is covered by one of the following areas as defined by Georgia Law.

  • Personal illness: individuals whose attendance in school would endanger their health or the health of others,
  • Death or serious illness of an immediate family member,
  • Recognized religious holiday,
  • Student under orders from government agency,
  • Service as a page in the Georgia General Assembly,
  • Conditions rendering school attendance impossible or hazardous to students’ safety or health,
  • Registering to vote or are voting, for a period not exceed one day.
  • Military leave of a parent and/or guardian

For an absence to be excused, a parent note and/or more formal documentation (doctor’s note, court papers, etc.) can be provided for the seven areas up to fifteen total absences per year; thereafter, for an absence to be excused, ONLY appropriate formal documentation beyond parental notification is required- doctor/dental note, court documentation, obituary, etc. For more information, refer to the Student Handbook.
