If you receive a pink absent slip during your WIN time from your WIN teacher, you need to take this slip to the teacher who marked you absent for the date and period written on the slip. After it is signed by that teacher, the slip needs to be turned into the office within 2 days.
Example: You get an absent slip on Thursday, Dec. 13 for an absence on Wednesday, Dec. 12. This needs to be turned into the office by Monday, Dec. 17. If the slip is not turned in, the absence will be counted as an unexcused absence and you will need to serve detention time.
If you are going to be absent during finals (January 10 & 11), you need to make arrangements ahead of time with your teacher(s).
