Attendance Clarification for Northern Middle Students

Last Updated on Aug 15, 2014 at 5:13pm | Northern Middle School

The following excerpt is from the 2014-15 Northern Middle School Handbook, The Bear Facts:
PLEASE NOTE: Students do NOT have personal days allotted to them.  For circumstances which are not emergencies, the student must have prior approval from the principal or designee and shall not exceed five (5) days.  Prior approval will only be granted for reasons that necessitate missing school days.   Vacations do not necessitate missing school days because they can occur on days when school is not in session.  Taking vacations during the school year may result in unexcused absences.  
This has always been the policy, but not necessarily the practice.  From this point, it will be the practice.
