Absence Information

Attention JMS Parents:

There is a NEW Mt. Lebanon attendance policy. The full Board Approved policy can be accessed here.

Please send or email an excuse for your child on the day he/she returns to school. Be aware that if a written or emailed excuse for an absence is not received by the homeroom teacher within three (3) calendar days upon the student's return, the absence will be marked illegal. Students accumulating three or more illegal absences will be scheduled for an Attendance Improvement conference with the Vice Principal.

If your child will miss school due to a pre-planned educational trip, you and your child must complete a pre-approved absence form and submit it one week in advance of the absence. This form can be obtained in the JMS attendance office or printed from the link below.
