Absences

PACE attendance expectations mirror those expected in the workplace. When a student must be absent for medical or other unavoidable family circumstances, it is the responsibility of the student to notify the school via phone or email prior to the start of the school day. This must be followed up by a written note from the parent acknowledging the absence.
 
For a planned event or anticipated absences that require that the student will miss school, parents/guardians are asked to send a note to PACEas far in advance as possible. It is the student’s responsibility to request assignments and monitor their status.
 
If an absence occurs during an internship or off-site placement, the student will be responsible for notifying the supervisor. Please remember that inconsistent attendance at work can be cause for dismissal from the internship or job.
