  • The guardian must inform the class teacher or class supervisor of the reason for their child's absence. For absences other than due to illness, the guardian must request permission in good time.

    In elementary school, the class teacher or class supervisor grants a student permission to be absent from school for a maximum of five days. The principal decides on the granting of exemption from teaching for periods longer than those mentioned above.

    You can request an exemption from schoolwork in Wilma.
