Planned Absence Request
Ridgeline urges families to plan vacations and travel to coincide with scheduled school breaks. Nationwide and schoolwide data show that a lengthy planned absence frequently leads to a student being chronically absent over the course of the year. While there are obvious benefits to travel, research consistently shows that chronic absenteeism hurts students academically and socially, and adversely impacts classroom communities. Parents are required to contact the school principal well in advance of any planned absence. If the absence is unavoidable, students will be asked to create a project, with the help of their family, to reflect on the time away from school and, hopefully, to share their experience with their classmates Teachers may provide make-up work for students who take planned absences. The school is required to withdraw a student after any absence lasting 10 consecutive school days or more.
