ATTENDANCE POLICY


Every student is expected to attend school for a full day on a daily basis.

The goal for all students is to have 96% attendance or higher, which means no more than seven absences all year long. Absences, excused and unexcused, impact a student’s academic achievement.

Examples of UNEXCUSED absences include:

  • Running errands for family
  • Babysitting
  • Vacations or trips
  • Weather Conditions
  • Transportation problems

Absences – EXCUSED

Illness or injury of pupil

  • Medical, dental, or optometric services
  • Attendance at a funeral
  • Appearance in court
  • Religious retreat
  • Observance of religious or holiday
  • Pre-arranged mental health services
  • Take Your Daughter or Son to Work Day
 

MESSAGE TO PARENTS


School attendance is vital to student achievement. Students who develop patterns of good attendance are much more likely to be successful both academically and socially.


It is the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to provide documentation to verify an absence within ten (10) days after the student returns to school in order to prevent absences from being recorded as noncompliant. Absences include coming to school late, leaving early and missing class periods.
