Absences and Late ArrivalsPlease write a note to your child’s classroom teacher indicating the reason for your child’s absence upon his/her return. When a student arrives late, you are asked to sign him/her in at the front office.WCPSS Attendance Policy
Coming to school every day, ready to learn, is important for your child's success -- and it's required by state law for children between the ages of 7 and 16.
Excused absences include:
- illness or injury
- a death in the family
- health care appointments
- court appearances
- religious observance
- natural disasters
- outside educational opportunities (you'll need to complete this form in advance)
Your child will need to make up all work he or she missed, as scheduled by the teacher.
For more information, review Board Policy 6000: Attendance.
