To help ensure that parents, guardians, students, and staff members are aware of attendance policies and best practices, please read below. 

1. State Law
-Students are required to attend school daily unless the absence is excused. 

2. Excused vs. Unexcused?
-Excused Absences With a Note Absences can be excused for illness, a death in the family, other reasons listed in board policy, OR by the administration. NO NOTE=NOT EXCUSED

3. Family Vacations
-These must be PRE-APPROVED & should not exceed 5 school days.

4. Truancy
-When students reach their 5th unexcused absence, parents will be required to attend an attendance meeting.

5. If unexcused absences continue:
-Interventions will be in place at our school and our social worker will help families as needed.
-After 10 unexcused absences, cases must be turned over to the juvenile court.

6. The Bottom Line
- Students are more successful when they are at school daily. If your child is sick, please send a note with them the next morning to ensure their absence is excused.
