Home and Hospital

Short Term Home and Hospital is designed for the student who will be out of class from 5 to 20 days due to illness and are motivated to keep up with their classes while they are absent.  A doctor’s note must accompany the referral stating how long the student will need to be on Home and Hospital instruction.  Work is assigned and corrected by the classroom teacher, however, a designated Home and Hospital teacher is assigned as a liaison to assist the student in completing assignments.  Students will receive up to five hours of instruction time per week.

Short-Term Independent Study (STIS)

Short Term Independent Study is available to those students unable to attend school from 5 to 20 days due to extenuating family circumstances. It is imperative that you provide at least 4 days prior written notice to allow for processing.  Independent Study contracts are obtained and returned to the Attendance office. 

*Please note: STIS will not be approved for family trips extending winter break, due to concerns about finals.


Long-Term Independent Study

Long-term independent study is used on rare occasions. Families must schedule an appointment to talk to the Assistant Principal of Pupil Services.
