I understand that my child will be missing educational opportunities, lessons, and activities that cannot be recreated or made up by merely completing homework assignments that would accompany those opportunities. I understand that this absence may impact my child’s overall potential for learning in a particular topic area or skill. I understand and accept the expectation that any assignments that are given prior to my child’s absence should be completed and returned on my child’s first day back at school. I will support and aid my child appropriately by ensuring the completion of his/her work. I understand that the teacher may have additional missed homework for my child to complete upon his/her return. I understand that my child’s teacher and/or principal may have reservations about this absence and may make written comments or request a conference regarding this or future planned absences.
