Report an Excused Absence

Report an Excused Absence

Excused absence notes (including medical) must be received within three (3) school days of the end of the absence in order to be excused. Early dismissal for students who drive themselves must be received by noon or two (2) hours prior to the dismissal (whichever comes first) in order to be excused. Students must pick up an early dismissal pass from Student Services. Please leave details of what you are excusing in the "Brief Description" section.
Excused absences guarantee students the right to make up any and all assignments assigned on the day[s] of absence at full credit. The student is responsible for asking the teacher(s) for assignments and make-up tests within two (2) class meetings with the teacher. The teacher(s) shall specify a reasonable period of time for completion of make-up work. In no case shall the time be less than one full calendar day for each day missed. Work due to be turned in on the day of the excused absence will be turned in upon return with the potential to earn full credit. The principal or designee shall have the authority to modify these conditions with a confirmed hardship. (Source: Portion from District School Board of Pasco County Secondary Student Code of Conduct.)
