Laura H. Carnell School expects all students to come to school prepared and ready to learn each day. When your child is absent from school, send in a written excuse for this absence within three days of your child’s return to school. If your child is absent more than 3 consecutive days, please notify the office. Excessive absences could result in a referral to Truancy Court.

·       A note signed by a parent/legal guardian must be brought to school after each absence indicating the dates and reasons for the absence.

·       All absences will be coded unexcused if a note is not brought to school the day the child returns.

·       Three or more days of absences must be accompanied by a written note from a doctor or verification from the principal.
