Excused Absences

Excused Absences: Students shall not be tardy to school or absent without an acceptable excuse. Absences due to the following conditions will be considered excused if documented within three (3) days of the student returning to school:
  1. Death in the immediate family 
  2. Subpoenaed court appearance
  3. Medical condition (as documented by the parent and/or physician)
  4. Religious holiday (if such holiday is verified and the school is notified in advance)
  5. Other good and just cause as approved by the principal 

To be considered as excused in any of the above categories, the parent must be aware of and support the absence. No absence will be considered as excused that is in violation of any court order.

Excessive Excused Absences: The attendance record of students with more than 10 excused absences will be reviewed by the principal and addressed if needed.
