Upper School Planned Absence Form
A planned absence for a personal or educational purpose that has been approved in advance is an excused absence. Such absence will count toward loss of credit. In the event of a medical absence, please provide any additional medical documentation. This form must be completed and submitted at least 5 days prior to the first day of the planned absence.
Per Thornton Academy's Attendance Policy: Any student who accumulates 12 absences in a yearlong course or 7 absences in a semester-long course, excused or unexcused, will not receive credit for that class towards graduation.
*Students who travel outside of Maine during the school year must follow the Governor’s Executive Orders related to travel. If you have any questions you may contact the school's nursing staff at 602-4465.
