    1. Illness of the pupil; serious illness of a member of the family which necessitates the absence of the student; death in the immediate family; medical or dental appointments which cannot be made during non-school hours; religious observance; absences which have prior approval of the principal’s office; if a student has an afternoon Advanced Placement Exam, the parents may excuse the student from morning classes.
