Attendance Policy


All children are expected to be in attendance each day unless

they are ill or a family emergency arises. Schools do not receive

state compensation for absences due to illness. If your child is not in

school, we do not receive state funds. Please pay close attention to

your child’s future by seeing that he/she is in school and on time each

day. Attendance problems hinder progress. Even if you get the

missed assignments for your child to do at home, it is not the same as

your child being in class and participating. Teachers are not obligated

to provide make-up work for unexcused absences. However,

students are allowed to make up work missed because of a justified
