For All Schools - Beginning September 14 we will be following our Board approved handbook as it relates to excusing absences. Please see the text below. Written verification documentation must be presented within two (2) school days of returning to school after an absence in order for the absence to be recorded as “excused” and a 2-day work extension will be allowed for all schoolwork missed. The following are absences allowed for an Excused Absence and the required documentation: • Illness—parent/guardian(s) note up to 4 days, after 4 consecutive days, a doctor’s note is required • Recovery from an accident—parent/guardian(s) note up to 4 days, after 4 consecutive days, a doctor’s note is required • Required court attendance—official documentation required • Medical, counseling/therapy, and dental appointments—parent/guardian(s) or doctor/counselor’s note • Death in the immediate family—parent/guardian(s) note • Observation or celebration of a bona fide religious holiday—parent/guardian(s) note • College visit, 3 per a semester—College Visit form required • Visit to the Department of Motor Vehicles for a test or license, parent/guardian(s) note or receipt of appointment • Such other good cause as may be acceptable to the Principal or permitted by law (Such information will be kept confidential)—Email or letter to principal, with at least 1 school day notice when known • Visits to the School Nurse, School Counselor, and Main Office—note/pass from the office visited • Field trips and required attendance at athletic events, and other school-sponsored events that have dates/times ahead of absences are considered excused absences from those classes missed. Extensions on missed work do not apply to these types of absences unless prior teacher approval. NOTE: “Excused absences shall not be permitted if they cause a serious effect upon the student’s educational progress (RSA 193.1).” The Principal may also require additional documentation to support the written notice.
There has been conversation among Mascenic families regarding the district providing an alternative learning plan for students who will not mask. After consulting with our attorney, we are under no legal obligation to do that. However, if a student has a disability that could preclude them from the masking requirement, we would meet as a team, after a referral is made, to consider whether the disability falls under section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. If the student is found to qualify for a 504 plan, the team would then create an individual plan and then consider if not masking is a reasonable accommodation. More information about Section 504 can be found at this link https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/504faq.html. 504 Referral document can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bBuT57VlHa9w8KvH7oMDF4xAT7Pn7WgM/view?usp=sharing
Due to substantial transmission of COVID-19 in our schools, all students, staff, and visitors will be required to wear masks beginning tomorrow, September 9, 2021. At the end of the day on Friday, we will revisit our data and inform families if masks will continue to be required next week. Remember, this does not mean that masks are on indefinitely. We are masking right now to keep everyone in school.
Good Morning Mascenic Families. Our MealTime online lunch application is now working.
