Students checking out before 12:15 will be counted as absent
All check-outs MUST be returned with parent/doctor excuse the following day of return or within 3 days of check out.
There are NO checkouts after 3 p.m. Reason: Traffic and confusion during dismissal. Please be considerate of this policy.
Excused Notes for Absences:
You have 3 parent notes that can be used per semester. Please review the handbook for what is accepted as an excused absence. Please turn these excused parent/doctor notes within 3 days of return so that we can change our attendance record. This is very important for our attendance rate and other state reports that reflect on our school's performance.
PERFECT ATTENDANCE IS DEFINED AT EPMS AS: NO ABSENCES AND NO LATE CHECK-INS OR CHECK-OUTS
If you request work for a sick child, we will send a request to the teacher via email.
Please give 24 hour notice when requesting work. Teachers have to gather assignments during their planning. Planning periods are sometimes busy for the teachers and they may not have time to get the assignments to the office. If work is sent to the office, we ask that you call to verify that work has been sent. Please pick up the assignments you requested. Work that is sent up is due upon the studnets return. If no work is sent/requested, the student will have as many days as they were absent to make up the work. It is the student's responsibility to find out what work they missed upon their return.
