The parents still have to submit parent notes/doctors notes to Mrs. Miller for any time missed from school whether it is their in school track day or if they are home e-Learning.  A student has to attend school on their scheduled track day to be counted present for that day.  If they are absent on their in school track day, they cannot complete the attendance log at home on e-Learning to be counted present for each class period.  Students are still allowed 10 days covered by parent notes each school year and an unlimited amount of doctors notes. These can be emailed to Mrs. Miller at the email address above and have to be submitted within a 48 hour time period once the absence occurs.  A student is considered in attendance when present for their scheduled track day for at least 3 hours of the school day.  A student is considered in attendance when present for their e-Learning days when they have completed the attendance log for 4 of their classes not counting advisory.
