    Northwood Pre-Approved Absence Request Form

    Please complete this form prior to your child's absence.



    Procedure for Absence Pre-Approval Requests

    Students should be present in school every day unless illness or other extenuating circumstances exist. The Georgia Board of Education lawfully excuses students for the following reasons: personal illness, death in the immediate family, religious holidays, and other educational days as pre-approved by the school principal. Parents/guardians must notify the principal of their request by completing the request form located on the school website at least five school days prior to the absence. Submission of parental/guardian request does not guarantee approval. A school administrator or designee will contact the parent/guardian upon the final decision. As in the past, absences for illness, death in the family or religious holidays can be approved by sending an email to northwoodattendance@fultonschools.org. 

    1. The principal/designee approval form is to be used for extenuating circumstances only.
    2. One form is required per student.
    3. Submit the completed, signed, and dated form to northwoodattendance@fultonschools.org. 
    4. Your student’s attendance record will be taken into consideration when reviewing your request.
    5. A copy of the decision to accept, decline or amend your request will be emailed back to you.
