School Attendance

Regular attendance at school is of the utmost importance. For each day a child is absent, the sequence of learning is broken and planned activities are missed.

Legal absences from school may occur for the following:

  • sickness
  • death in the family
  • impassable roads
  • religious observance
  • presence in court
  • quarantine
  • attendance at organized clinics
  • remedial health treatment, and
  • approved cooperative work programs.

In order for the absence to be marked “LEGAL” , the student must bring in a written excuse, stating the reason for missing school.

If your child has a communicable disease, please notify the school office immediately. Any other illness that may last more than one day should be reported to the school office.
