Please contact the school each day of your child's absence.

STUDENT ABSENCES:  When a student is absent, the parent/guardian must call the school and report the absence by calling
410-313-2512, or email the attendance email at bmmsabsence@hcpss.org. Upon returning to school after an absence, the student must bring
a written note signed by a parent/guardian citing the date of the absence and an explanation why the student could not attend
school. The student must take the note to his/her first period class where a pass will be issued in exchange for the note. A student
has two days from the date of the absence to bring in a note and get a pass. If the note is received after the two-day grace period,
the student will be given an unexcused pass for the absence. If a note is not received, the absence will remain documented as
Truant. Please see the Secondary Student Handbook for more information.

What is the Difference Between Excused and Unexcused Absences?

Lawful Absence-An excused absence for any portion of the day under the following conditions:
1. Illness of the student
2. Death in the immediate family
3. Court summons
4. Observance of a religious holiday
5. Hazardous weather conditions (as determined by the Superintendent)
6. State emergency (as determined by the Governor)
7. Suspension
8. Lack of authorized transportation (school system transportation)

Unlawful Absence (Truant)-An unexcused absence for any reason other than those cited as lawful are presumed as
unlawful and may constitute truancy. Students unlawfully absent are considered truant:
1. Missed bus
2. Car trouble
3. Traffic
4. No parking

REMEMBER: Upon return to school, the student must bring a written note signed by a parent/guardian citing the date
of the absence and an explanation why the student could not attend school. A student has two days from the date of the
absence to bring in a note and get a pass. If the note is received after the two-day grace period, the student will be given
an unexcused pass for the absence and will remain truant.

Parent Visitation Guidelines
The Howard County Public School System welcomes visitors to our schools.
Visitors to a school campus, building or classroom should follow these procedures in order to limit   interruptions and distractions to teaching and learning and maximize safety for all.
Contact the Principal to discuss the purpose of the visit and to establish a convenient time for both the visitor and the school. The school will arrange for an escort for the visitor.
Sign in at the main office and receive a visitor badge. Visitors may be required to provide a photo ID.
Schedule any desired follow-up meetings with school staff at a mutually convenient time.
To avoid interrupting instruction, students may not shadow other students.
Interactions between visitors and school staff or students will be limited. In some cases, the desired information may be more conveniently obtained through one of the following sources:
School system website (www.hcpss.org), individual school websites, HCPSS News, on-line school profiles, or archived school newsletters School Locator, for the school attendance area of a specific address
School counselors and administrators, via phone or email
A school visit during American Education Week, Nov. 12-16 Visitors must receive prior approval from the school administrator before entering a classroom. Teachers may request that visits be rescheduled to serve instructional needs and students' best interests.




Burleigh Manor provides a quality instructional program which supports the diverse needs of lifelong learners in a safe and nurturing academic community.
