  Saturday School  
 

At CSP, students are not only challenged but also provided many opportunities to improve themselves academically. A great example for this is CSP Saturday School which has been a tradition since 2005.

CSP Saturday School is offered for students who look for more challenge, more practice, or a catch up time for whatever is being taught during school days.

Please check CSP website to sign up at this link:

  Absences and Excuse Notes  
 

If your child is absent from school, a note must be provided within 3 days of the absence. Students should turn in the absent to their 1st period teachers and not the front desk. Parents can also email excuse notes to Ms. June (for middle school students) or Ms. O'Brien. (for high school students)
Turning absent notes into 1st period teachers is a new so we want to make parents aware so you can talk it over with your children. Only students with excused absences will be allowed to make up work they missed while absent.

  Extended Absence Form  
 

If a student will miss more than 4 days, an extended absence form must be turned in and approved at least 1 week prior to the occurrence. The form is located at the front desk and on the CSP website under the student tab. Students must first get approval from each of their teachers and then submit it to Ms. Moore for approval.

Ms. Moore will need time to discuss the need and each request individually with Mr. G. If a student fails to submit the form prior to the absences, the absences will not be approved and students will not be allowed to make up the work.
It is not a guarantee that the absences will be approved even if submitted on time.
