Home & Hospital

Home & Hospital is a program designed to help students meet the basic academic needs while they are unable to attend school due to hospitalization, injury or a physical/emotional illness.  Short Term Home & Hospital requires the student to be out under a doctor’s care a minimum of ten consecutive days to forty-five days or Long Term Home & Hospital is available for students that will be out of school for a minimum of forty-six consecutive days or longer.

  • Home & Hospital Instruction cannot replace every aspect of a student’s education.
  • Reduction of class requirements cannot be expected.
  • Participation classes may pose challenges.  Credit may be lost or a poor grade earned since there is no way to duplicate the activities of a participation class while the student is at home or hospitalized.
  • Earning of academic credit is not guaranteed.
