It is the responsibility of parents to ensure their child attends school except when too ill or in those specific situations defined by State of Connecticut law and Board of Education policy (SEE TABLE).
If your child must be out of school then we expect students to make up essential work missed during illnesses or absences. The following guidelines outline the procedures to be used in making up work:
- If a student is absent for one or two days then makeup work will be given to the student by the teacher upon his/her return to school.
- If a student is absent for at least three consecutive days, parents may call the school to request an assignment sheet, which shall be available for pick up at the school office on the day following the request. In general the assignment sheet will cover activities for a two-day period at a time.
- All makeup work must be completed in a reasonable period of time – generally equal to the amount of time the student was out. In other words, if a child is out one week, all make up work must be complete in one week upon return to school.
