Student Absence Documentation Requirement
Per GCS and Summerfield Elementary rules, all student absences require a written note from the parent/guardian explaining the absence(s). The student should deliver the note to school authorities (teacher, attendance office official, etc.) as soon as possible upon his/her return to school. Failure to submit such notes within 3 school days after returning to school will result in an unlawful absence being recorded.
Parents/guardians are requested to contact school officials immediately when unanticipated absences occur. All anticipated periods of absence should be reported to school officials prior to the period of absence. Such absences should receive prior approval by school officials.
For your convenience, the following note may be completed and used.
NOTE: This is a PTA generated document and is NOT a Summerfield Elementary or GCS generated document.
You may use this note or prepare your own.
