When a child is going to be absent from school for five (5) or more days for reasons other than illness, please contact the school office if you would like to arrange for an Independent Study Contract. You must receive permission from the Principal beforehand and upon approval, the teacher must be notified at least 5 SCHOOL days to prepare a learning packet for the student to complete during his/her absence. If the work is completed and approved by the teacher upon the student’s return, the absence will be noted as excused.

    Independent Study Contracts are meant to take the place of direct instruction. Students will receive enough work to cover 6 hours of instruction per day! Please be sure you and your child are able to complete this during the absence. All work MUST be completed and turned in on the first day your child returns to school.
