School board allows parents notes for illness
DeKalb students will no longer need a doctor’s statement for up to five days of personal illness, the school board decided last week. The board adopted a policy on final reading Thursday night that allows students to bring a note from a parent for up to five personal illnesses. The new policy will not go into effect until the beginning of the 2017-18 school year.
