Coburg Community Charter School Planned Absence Form
It is imperative that all students enrolled at Coburg Community Charter School be accounted for each day. For unexpected absences, such as those due to illness, please call the school prior to 8:15 a.m. on the day of the absence, if needing to leave a message, include student’s name, grade and reason for the absence (this is required). If parents/guardians do not call, for the child’s safety the school will telephone or email the parents/guardians at home or at work. You do not need to use this form to report the occasional illness or short doctor's appointments.
Because of our rigor and the importance of attendance for student success in school, absence due to vacation or other events is strongly discouraged. The multisensory nature of our school makes it impossible to replicate classroom time. Students re-entering the classroom after a tardy and or absence will often feel lost or “out-of step” with the others. For this reason, planned absences could be recorded as unexcused in our attendance system.
In addition, if a child is absent more than eight (8) half days in a twenty day period, the absence is considered irregular attendance and could be marked unexcused. Furthermore, we are required to drop all students from our rolls if they are absent ten or more consecutive days for non-health related reasons. Once a student is dropped from enrollment, he/she will need to reapply for enrollment. If the grade level is full, the student will be added to a wait list. If the grade level already has a waitlist, the student will be added to the bottom of the list.
Please contact the student’s teacher to arrange for make-up work. For planned absences, please be sure to provide ample time for teachers to prepare work (one day prior notice per day absent). For every day a student is absent, one day will be allowed to make up work that was assigned during the absence. For example, if a student is absent for three days, three days will be allowed to make up all work. Although, work that was assigned prior to the absence and due during the absence becomes due the first day back in class.
For planned absences, please complete the form below.
