Planned Absences for Vacation/Educational Trip
Requests for a planned absence must be made in writing at least two weeks prior to the absence. Planned
Absence Request forms are available in the office and on Harry S Truman Elementary School’s website.
Administrator approval is required for planned absences. Requests must be submitted at least two weeks in
advance so that the teacher can make necessary preparations to provide you with the academic material that will
be covered while on vacation. A letter of permission will then be granted by the principal in writing, after careful
consideration of student attendance and academic standing. If approved, the student will be responsible to
complete work that will be missed during his/her absence. The number of planned absences will be determined by
the administration. These pre-approved absences will be counted towards the ten (10) days as previously stated in
the above Frequent Absences section.
Also, check the Salisbury Township School District Calendar every year for the week of Standardized Testing
before scheduling any family trips so you can give your child the opportunity to take the assessment in an
atmosphere most conducive for testing with his/her classmates.
