Extended Absence Form

It is important for our school to know when your son/daughter will be absent, especially for an extended period of time. Extended absences are those that are two or more weeks in length. Parents/Guardians, please complete the Extended Absence Form below, or have your son/daughter pick up a paper copy at the Office.

Extended absences are either excused or unexcused.

Excused absences are those that are due to injury, illness, or emergent family issues. In the case of excused extended absences, Counsellors/administration will work with teachers and case managers or the School Based Team to determine an interim plan to reduce the impact on the student's education. These plans will be determined on a case by case basis.

Unexcused absences include family holidays or vacations when school is in session.  In the case of unexcused extended absences, please note that teachers are not obligated to provide work and/or cannot pre-teach or post-teach materials. Therefore, achievement or academic standing will likely be impacted. Please contact your child's teacher at least two weeks in advance of any vacation/holiday to discuss (see Staff Directory here).

If your absence does not fall under either category above, please select "Other" and contact LV Rogers Administration.

For curricular or extra-curricular field trips, please have your son/daughter pick up an Extra-Curricular Travel form at the Office.

Please see SD8 Kootenay Lake Policy 320 "Student Attendance" and LV Rogers Attendance Policy for clarification.
