Attendance Policies

Attendance is a required and legal record

A student who is not in school for at least one class period must be marked absent, even if the absence is excused.

Every absence counts. Excused absences are still absences

Schools can excuse absences when a student misses school for religious, medical or emergency reasons, but the excused absences is a legal part of the student's record. Schools publish school attendance policies, including rules for excused absences and vacations, and help students who  miss school stay on track with take-home and make-up work. Schools will reach out to learn why students missed school and how to help. Parents must provide a reason for absences.

Extended Vacations

Extended vacations and family travel are not acceptable absences. Students must be in attendance every day until the start of the holiday or holiday break. If you are taking an extended vacation, you must submit the following:

  • An address where the child will be

  • Telephone contact

  • A copy of the airline ticket (must have a return ticket).

  • Dates that the child will not be in school.
