Absence from Classes for Preparatory Courses

An absence is any time the student is not physically present in class. Students who are absent will NOT be given any makeup for the missed classes, including absence due to medical leave.

If a student is to be absent, the parent/guardian must call the school on the day their child will be absent to inform the teacher/Business Executive. For medical leave, a medical certificate (for illness) or letter from the parent/guardian (for emergency) should be provided once the student returns to school.

A student who absents himself or herself is held responsible for all assignments and for the entire content of the course missed, regardless of the reason for his or her absence. The student is encouraged to consult with his or her teacher regarding the notes and assignments covered during his/her absence.

Final examinations at the end of each semester are required of all students. Students will NOT be given any retest for any missed assessments for whatever reason, including medical leave.

Students who are late for more than 30 minutes for any assessment (Examination) will not be allowed to take the examination.

Parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to arrange all non-emergency appointments after school, on weekends or during the summer or school holidays in order to minimize the loss of time for learning. Extended holidays are considered unexcused absences.
