    A comprehensive schedule is maintained on the DHS website. We also mail a quarterly newsletter with important dates. Please consult those documents for key dates throughout the year.

    Procedure after Returning From an Absence

    A student who is absent from school for an entire day or any portion of the day shall bring an absence note to the attendance office before the beginning of the first class period. The note (note from parent/guardian, medical excuse, or legal document) must contain the date, student's name, reason for absence, daytime phone number and parent/guardian's signature. Absences not validated by an appropriate written document within three days of the absence will be considered unexcused.

    Please read the full Attendance policy in the Student/Parent Handbook
