Good attendance is critical for success in school. All absences will be coded unexcused unless an email, written note, or one of the forms below is received within three days from the parent/guardian. State law allows absences to be excused for the following reasons:
- Illness or injury
- Death in the immediate family
- Medical or dental appointments
- Court or administrative proceedings
- Religious observance
- Educational opportunity - Your request must be submitted for consideration at least three days prior to absence. An explanation of the trip/opportunity must be given.
