Attendance

over 3 years ago

During each school year, each student is allowed: 5 unexcused-absence days, and/or 5 unexcused- tardy days. Parents may provide a note to the school for days missed. While parent notes count towards a students "unexcused" absent totals, a parent note does allow the student to make up work missed while absent or tardy.    Exceeding the limit of 5 unexcused-absence-days or 5 unexcused-tardy days will result in a notification to appear before the Truancy-Disciplinary Hearing Authority Board. At that time, parents will be fined $20.00 for each day over the 5 day unexcused limit for either unexcused-absence days and /or unexcused tardy days. For tardies exceeding 7/8, parents may be charged up to $75.00.
