Excused Absences:

Students may be deemed excused only for the following reasons:

personal illness; quarantine under the direction of a health officer; personal medical appointment; funeral services of parent, sibling, grandparent, brother-in-law, sister-in-law; service on jury duty; exclusion from attendance for medical reasons;  personal court appearance;  up to four hours per semester for attendance at a religious retreat; observance of a religious holiday or ceremony;


Absences must be supported by appropriate documentation or verification as specified in District Board Policy and Administrative Regulation concerning excused absences. For example, a physician’s note will be required when the absence is medically related. Other forms of documentation may be required depending upon the nature of the absence. Upon returning to school from a medical appointment, students should submit to the office a note from the doctor or dentist scheduling of such appointments after school hours whenever possible. We do encourage the work missed be made up.


Unexcused Absences:

Absences which are not excused are classified as unexcused absences or truancies. The following are examples of ‘unexcused’ absences:

going to work with a parent or other family member;  absences; personal problems which are not specified as a basis for an excused  babysitting, taking care of other family members;  family vacations; and attending a sporting event school site for the most current version of your school’s schedule. Students should not be on the school ground more than 15 minutes (with the exception of breakfast student participants) before the school starting time unless they are participants in a supervised program. Students should not remain on the school grounds after school unless they are involved in an organized, supervised program.
