Message from Mrs. Wallace: Please remember to have your parents call the office to let us know when you are sick and missing school. According to the handbook, your parents have two days to call in or it becomes an unexcused absence. If you have an unexcused absence then you get 0's on all your assignments, tests and quizzes for that day. If you have an unexcused absence as a senior then you lose your open campus for week. Please tell your parents to call in when you are home sick. I don't want you to be punished when you have done nothing wrong! I do have to follow the handbook, though and it clearly states that your parents have two days in which to notify the school that you are sick and absent from school.
