Below is the link to the Planned Absence Form (PAF).  An athlete must attend practice unless sick or an excused absence has been arranged. If you are planning an excused absence, you must fill out a PAF.  The PAFs will be checked on Monday of each week. If you submit a PAF after the Monday that affects the week's practices, you MUST communicate the absence via email, remind, or parent note to Coach Butcher and Coach Butcher only.  Coach Butcher will be our contact person on all absences to help streamline the process and keep everything to one contact person. 

The SWIMMER's responsibility is to follow up and confirm that Coach Butcher has received the PAF request information and that nothing else is required. Please do not assume anything. It could cost you participating in a meet(s).  If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to attendance@valposwim.com  If it is an emergency, please reach out to Coacher Butcher Directly.
