Families will receive an automated phone call for uncleared absences. Families have 5 days to clear an absence.
All students arriving after the start of school must go to the office for a late slip. State law mandates that schools keep a record of absences and notify parents when their child is truant. Students are considered truant after:
- Three unexcused absences or tardies
- Three unreported absences—(we didn’t hear from parent)
Excused Absences or tardies are those due to:
- Illness, medical/dental appointment
- Court Appearance (child’s) documentation from court required
- Funeral of Immediate family member
- Observance of Religious Holiday
Unexcused absences and tardies are those due to:
- Unreported absences—no contact from family
- Personal reasons such as trips, non medical appointments, missing the bus, etc
