If your child is absent, please send the excuse within 3 days of the absence for it to be excused. Acceptable excuses are personal illness (limit of 10 days per year without doctor's excuse), hospitalization/medical or dental appointment of student, emergency (approved by principal), death in immediate family, court subpoena, religious holiday (with prior written approval by principal), and absence approved by the principal (absence must be approved in advance.) The Student Handbook (pg.15) reads "Supporting documentation will not be accepted after 3 school days upon the student's return to school." Absences can not be excused after 3 days. Please help us follow our LCS Policy.
