At Leman Academy of Excellence we believe that consistent attendance is vital; however, we realize there will be times when your child will be unable to attend school. When your child is absent from school, the parent/guardian must call the school before 9:00 am. Please include in the message the scholar(s) name, the parent/guardian name, grade, teacher, reason for the absence and the expected return date. If the teacher is able to collect homework material, it will be available for pickup between 3-4 pm in the front office. Upon return, scholars will have one day to make up missed work or tests/quizzes for every day of absence. If an extended absence is anticipated or planned, the parent/guardian must complete a “Prearranged Absence Form” from the front office and submit it to the front office or your child’s teacher. There is no guarantee that the loss of school time will not have an impact on grades and overall academic progress.
