Valid, excused absences include: illness/injury; death, illness/injury within the immediate family; instances where attendance by the pupil would be hazardous; prior approval of special absences; school-related activities; validated doctor appointment; validated appointment for driver’s license test date; college visits (up to three per year for 11th and 12th grades). We will not promote students who are absent more than 20% of the academic year, excused or unexcused, to the next grade level without approval by our administration.

In the event of hurricanes or other weather emergencies, we follow the Hillsborough County School District’s closing policy. Please tune in to local radio and television stations for Hillsborough County school closings.
