is presented to the SLA
facilitator (i.e. sports travel, approved field trip with another class).
Death in the family. Appropriate verification will be needed such as an obituary
in the newspaper, funeral card, or note from the funeral home.
Extended hospitalization. Appropriate verification will be required from your physician
and hospital. This does not include emergency room visits or doctor appointments
For students who are commuters—dangerous weather conditions in which driving is considered
by local police authorities to be unsafe.
Being called to testify in a court case or jury duty – but not for being arrested.

These excused absences require that official documentation be provided within two

remains an unexcused absence.
