On the morning following the absence, the student is required to bring a note signed by his parent explaining the reason for the absence. The student must check in at the head of division’s (HD’s) assistant office to hand in the note. 

In case the absence is justified, students who miss any test or quiz have to sit for a make-up test/quiz in the afternoon (The weekday will be assigned in due time.).
