Educational Absence Request for Approval
Highland Elementary School
Educational requests must be submitted to the principal at least TWO WEEKS in advance in order for the team to review the request. REquests received during or after the trip will be denied.

While many experiences are educational, the parameters for an excused absence are intended to reinforce grade level curriculum standards or afford a unique opportunity. Please visit the following website for current grade level standards to align your request to your child's specific grade level standards.

*Note: Family trips to Disney, long weekends at the beach or mountains, as well as family reunions and celebrations are not reasons to request excused absences for educational opportunity.

Grade Level Standard Reinforced by the Trip *
Example: RL.3.9 Compare and contrast the most important points and key details presented in two texts on the same topic.
What task/product will your child produce that aligns with the above chosen standard? *
Example: Henry will read two informational texts about Williamsburg and create a Slidedeck presentation contrasting the key details from both texts.
I acknowledge that teachers may be able to provide some learning tasks in advance of a trip, however teachers can not be expected to provide families with packets of work to be completed and graded.

I also acknowledge that nothing could replace the contact time of direct instruction with the teacher and that additional parental support may be needed to complete work upon our return.

Missing direct instruction may lead to misunderstandings of content and ultimately affect my child's mastery of grade level standards.
