Just like at a job, you should let us know when you’re going to miss school. Every absence should be excused.  To excuse an absence, you should do the following: 

  1. Email horizonte.attendance@slcschools.org or call 801-578-8574 with your name, student number, and reason for absence. 
  1. Email the teacher(s) whose class(es) you’ll miss to ask what work you missed and how to make it up.
