New Process for Requesting Extended Absences (3 or More Days) for Champlain Students
Vermont parents may request up to 10 consecutive days for a pre-planned, extended absence during the school year. Parents/Guardians must fill out the Extended Absence Request Form for any non-medical absence that total three or more days. Only activities that are educational in the view of administration are accepted as excused absences. 
Parents must hand in the Extended Absence Request Form to the principal at least ten school days before their departure date. The principal will inform the parent as soon as possible whether or not the absences will be excused. Use of the form begins on November 1, 2016. Click here to download the form, or pick up a copy from the main office.
