State law allows absences to be excused for the following reasons:

  • Illness or injury
  • Quarantine
  • Death in the immediate family
  • Medical or dental appointments
  • Court or administrative proceedings
  • Religious observance
  • Educational opportunity - Your request must be submitted for consideration at least three days prior to absence. An explanation of the trip/opportunity must be given.
