The School system will provide instruction at home for children who are physically disabled or who are unable to attend school. In order to receive such instruction at home, a child must be absent for more than ten days before a parent can apply for home instruction. If you know that your child is going to be absent for more than ten days and feel that home instruction is necessary, please contact the school office for further information.
