After an absence from school, school law requires that upon return to school,  a properly written excuse letter from parent or guardian should be submitted. The first day a student returns to school from an absence, an excuse note should be presented from a parent or guardian stating the reason for the absence. These excuse notes should be given to the homeroom teacher in the morning.

The full absence policy is described in the 21-22 Mifflin Student Handbook.

A printable Absence Excuse Note can be found here: Absence note Mifflin
