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
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.
