Youth Program Attendance Policy
It’s our expectation that each student will attend the sessions of the PAAM Youth Program for which s/he is registered. However, we understand that the occasional absence may be necessary.
PLANNED ABSENCE OR CHANGE IN SCHEDULE
Please complete the form below as early in the semester as possible. You’ll receive confirmation from a PAAM staff member that the form was received.
Please e-mail and call Tessa (firstname.lastname@example.org, 508-487-1750 x13). In your email, please describe the reason for the absence(s) and expected return date.
AN ABSENCE OR CHANGE IN SCHEDULE IS CONSIDERED UNEXCUSED IF YOU:
- Fail to notify us at least one week in advance of planned absences;
- Fail to state a reason for an absence;
- Fail to notify us of changes that impact the bus schedule/class participation.
PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM
Multiple planned absences that impact participation should be discussed at the beginning of the semester. Multiple unexcused absences or repeated changes that impact class time or the bus schedule will result in suspension or withdrawal from the program. If an absence is due to illness/injury or a family emergency we will make exceptions to this rule. We’ll also do our best to work around infrequent school events/other planned absences if notified in advance. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
Thanks for your consideration,
Tessa Bry Taylor
Curator of Youth Education
