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.
From WCPSS Board Policy 6000.3:
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)
You'll need to provide a note within two days of your child's return to school or the absences will be recorded as unexcused.
Please feel free to email our Data Manager with the specific details of the absence: email@example.com
Your child will need to make up all work he or she missed, as scheduled by the teacher.
