OMS Pre-Absence Form

Absence Due to Doctor/Dentist Appointments

Learners who need to leave school to go to a medical/ dental appointment should bring a note from a parent/guardian to the Office prior to the start of school on the day of the absence. This information can also be left on the Attendance Line. Although there are times when advance notice of an appointment is not possible, calling the office shortly before an appointment to request a child be released from class is not ideal.

Learners will be issued a "Permit to Leave the Building" pass.  Upon returning, students must check-in at the office and will be issued a pass to return to class. If medical documentation is presented to the office, the absence may be coded as an excused absence due to medical reasons.

End of Day Student Messages

If you need to reach your student during the school day, please contact the office with student messages no later than 3:00 p.m. We cannot guarantee messages received after 3:00 p.m. will reach your student by the end of day.
