School policy does not provide for any extension of the spring break or early starting dates. No student will be excused from school for travel the week before or the week after spring break. Any student’s absence for travel reasons on these days will be considered unexcused. The day(s) preceding and immediately following spring break will be marked double unexcused days. A double unexcused day means that four points will be deducted from the student’s cumulative grade in each class at the end of that grading period. Teachers are not required to make special provisions for students who are unexcused. Students absent because of illness on the day(s) preceding and/or immediately following spring break will be required to bring a doctor’s excuse to the Attendance Officer upon their return to school. College days are not allowed on the day preceding and immediately following spring break without prior administrative approval.
