Attendance and Absences
Coming to school every day, ready to learn, is important for your student's success -- and it's required by state law for students 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 provide a note within two days of your student's return to school or the absences will be recorded as unexcused. Your principal, SAP or school counselor will notify you of 3 or more unexcused absences, and will work with you and your student if absences are becoming excessive.
Your student will need to make up all assignments missed, as scheduled by the teacher.
