A Note About Absences

Coming to school every day, ready to learn, is important for your child's success. It's also required by state law for children between the ages of 7 and 16.

Excused absences include:


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. Your teachers will notify you if there are three or more unexcused absences and will work with you and your child if there is a concern that absences are becoming excessive.

Please note that per policy you will automatically receive an attendance phone call each day your child is absent. WCPSS will also send out attendance letters after (6) unexcused days and again after (10) unexcused days.  Your administration and the school Social Worker will also be notified of the excessive absences.
