Student Absences and Remote Work

While we recognize there has been a steady increase in community and school cases of COVID-19, students are still expected to be present for their in-person learning days. The learning experience that takes place within the classroom can not be replicated through assigned remote work. With the exception of students who the school or CDC has deemed as close contacts and are required to quarantine, staff are not expected to provide remote work for students who are not present due to illness or parent choice. As much as we would like to keep our students connected and learning, we simply do not have the capacity within our staff to accommodate the additional layer of planning and preparation that is required to offer remote experiences to any student who is absent on any given day. As such, if your child is out for illness, please contact the main office to report the absence. If you are choosing to keep your child home for any other reason, please complete a planned absence form.
