When a parent or guardian feels it is necessary to initiate an absence from school for a prearranged situation, please advise the classroom teacher in advance. If the absence will be for more than four days, the parent or guardian must obtain and complete the Strongsville City Schools Pre-Arranged Absence Form from the school office or download one from the link below. A pre-planned absence form must be submitted at least five (5) days prior to the first day of the planned absence. Missed assignments throughout this period of time will be given to the student upon their return to school.
