To edit the excusal, once submitted, hover the "i" icon of the attendance excusal label to see the full details for this Excusal. Click Edit Attendance Excusal to make changes to the duration or description of it or Delete the Attendance Excusal.
Please Note: Attendance Excusals cannot overlap. Only one Excusal per day is allowed.

The email notification will include your Excusal note if you have submitted the Attendance Excusal before the Homeroom Absence notification was sent.
