ABSENCES

On-time daily attendance is mandatory for students to benefit to the fullest from the instructional program.   The district recognizes, however, that there are situations that dictate a student’s absence.  Therefore, in accordance with district guidelines, absences may be excused for the following reasons:
 
 
      Doctor's appointment
      Death in the family
      Religious commitment
      Extenuating circumstances, as agreed to by the administration prior to 
         
the absence
      Approved school activities
      Student illness, Accident and/or Injury
 
It is the parent or guardian's responsibility to notify the school and submit appropriate documentation when the student is absent.  In the event of a student illness, accident and/or injury a parent verification note will be allowed for up to 5 school days for the school year. Notification shall be made to the attendance office as soon as possible but not later than one school day after the date of absence.
