    Request for Absences for Education Opportunities

    At Estes Hills Elementary School, we recognize that students may be absent due to travel opportunities or other educational experiences.  Parents may request that these absences be excused.   A student's overall attendance record will be considered in determining the number of days granted and whether or not  the request is approved or denied.  Family events such as weddings, reunions, etc. will not be considered.  We recognize that not all family events or vacations may fall under the category of an "educational opportunity" and anticipate that some students may have unexcused absences.   Please email Ms. McCann (pmccann@chccs.k12.nc.usat least 2 weeks before your trip to request an excused absence(s) for educational opportunities. You will be notified whether or not the absence(s) are excused.  Please keep in mind that excused and unexcused absences are part of a student's overall attendance record and an excessive number of absences can impact any student's academic performance.
