Religious Holidays - Excused Absence Form Letter

If your child will be absent from school due to a religious holiday, this will be counted as an excused absence from school, and our school district fully supports this absence. For your convenience, here is a form letter you can use to explain your child's absence. This letter should be submitted to the school office prior to your child's absence from school.
