The U Book
explains the school policy and expectations regarding absences and tardiness. During unplanned student absences, such as an illness or emergency, parents should notify Mrs. Cassie Hutto
in the Upper School Office or Mrs. Julia DeBardeleben
in the Lower School Office by 8:30 a.m.
, explaining the reason for the absence.
Students must submit a teacher- and parent-signed Requested Absence Form
to Mrs. Hutto or Mrs. DeBardeleben two days prior
to the date of any planned absence. This policy also applies to all school-sponsored, extracurricular, and/or athletic absences that occur during the school day. Upper School students must sign out in the Upper School office with Mrs. Hutto before leaving campus for any reason. Students must sign in with Mrs. Hutto before attending class or homeroom when they arrive after 8:10 a.m.
The Requested Absence Form and the U Book
are always available on the Parent Quick Links Resource Board under your Resources tab when you are logged in to the website. The full Absences section of the U Book states:
