Extended Absences & Independent Study Contracts

EXCESSIVE ILLNESS:  An administrator or designee may call a parent conference for each student when the student has accumulated ten (10) absences due to illness. After the 10th absence, a Chronic Illness form must be obtained from and submitted to the School Nurse, Tracy Fernandez at  Without a Chronic Illness form on file, a medical note for each subsequent absence due to illness will be required to mark the absence as being excused. Failure to provide a medical note will result in the absence being unexcused. (SRVUSD District Board Policy and Administrative Regulations BP 5113.1, AR 5113.1)  


INDEPENDENT STUDY:  To request an Independent Study Contract, a parent/guardian must submit a completed form to the Attendance Office.  Click here for an Independent Study Request Form. The Independent Study program is available to students who must leave school for 5 or more consecutive school days (AR 6158).
