The Emergency Leave Policy states:

The superintendent is in charge of determining who shall receive emergency leave. Persons desiring such leave shall make a request in writing to the superintendent. Prior to its being sent to the district office, it must be initialed by the principal or director involved to insure his/her knowledge of the request only.

    • Marriages
    • Special religious ceremonies.
