Every absence must have an excuse.

     - No more than ten (10) parent notes per year.

     - Doctor’s notes and other excuses must be brought to school within 3 days of the student’s return to school.

After the 3rd day, the absence is unexcused regardless of the reason for the absence.

Unexcused absences are not acceptable! If your child has:

     - 1 unexcused absence – parent/guardian will receive a letter from the school.

     - 2 unexcused absences- parent/guardian will receive a letter from the attendance officer.

     - 3 unexcused absences- parent/guardian will receive a letter from the District Attorney’s office stating as the last warning before the legal system becomes involved.

 

5 unexcused absences- parent/guardian will receive a letter stating that attendance is mandatory at the early warning truancy program.

 

  Early warning truancy program:

 

     - Parent/guardian’s attendance is mandatory.

 

     - If the parent/guardian does not attend the early warning truancy program or the unexcused absences continue, a legal notice/petition to juvenile court will be processed.

 

     - School staff will continue to monitor attendance.
