A student will be excused for exemption purposes from a temporary absence resulting from appointments with health care professionals if the student commences classes or returns to school on the same day of the appointment with a doctor's note. All health care professional notes must be returned within three (3) days after the appointment or the absence will count against the exemption absences.
