All students MUST exit from the student entrance on the east side of the building.
Students who miss all or parts of a school day due to a dental, medical or other appointments must provide written note from the dental/medical office where they received treatment.
Absences Due to Family Vacations for 3 or more days: Please complete the Extended Excused Absence form. It must be signed by each of the student's teachers and their parent(s). This form can be printed or picked up in the attendance office.
Juniors are given one college day and Seniors are given two. They are excused absences, but they do count towards the student’s total missed attendance days per quarter. Verification of attendance at a post-secondary school is required upon the return of the student to PLHS.
