Students are permitted 10 excused absences (outlined in the student handbook) verified by a parent note/email per school year. This includes sick days (verified by a parent note/email) and educational trips.
The parent note/email must be received within 3 school days of the student’s return to school. This is State Law and we have the duty to enforce that law.
After the 10 parent note excuses, a letter will be sent home requiring all future absences to be verified by a doctor’s note.
Parents will be sent letters notifying them when their child has 3 or more unlawful absences. After the 3rd unlawful absence a School Attendance Improvement Plan will be developed by a team consisting of certain school staff members, your child and you to develop actions to improve attendance. At 10 unlawful absences a prosecution may be filed before the Magisterial District Judge.
