Extended Absences from School

If your student will be away from school for 3 or more days, they will need to complete and hand in an Extended Absence Form.

If the absence will be occurring during protected time (Dec 19, 2019 - Jan 22, 2020 or May 28 - Jun 17, 2020), students will need to complete and hand in the Requested Student Absence Due to Illness or Extenuating Circumstances During Performance Tasks or Examinations Form (form will be available for download at a later date).

Hard copies of both of these forms can be picked up in the main office at any time
after September 30, 2019.
