Per district policy, parent excuse notes will only be accepted within 48 hours of the absence. There are three options for submitting an excuse note:
NOTE: Phone calls are not required to report an absence.
Notes from healthcare professionals will be accepted at any time and can be sent to Bowie the following three ways:
(student must date/time stamp the note using the machine next to the red box)
**All notes MUST have the student’s ID number written on the front page.
This pertains to students who miss school for the purpose of observing religious holy days (travel is limited to not more than one day of travel to and one day of travel from the observation site). To be considered a religious holy day, the holy day activity must be a tenet of the student’s faith.
Church retreats, camps, and missions trips and individual religious rites (baptisms, christenings, bar mitzvahs, etc) are not holy days.
Parent/guardian must complete the Holy Day form: https://bit.ly/1bVgKTx
