Unexcused & Excused Absences
ALL absences count! Students who have more than 18 total absences are at risk of failing. Parent/Guardians may also be issued a municipal court warning and possibly pay a fine.
Why do I need to send a note?
If a student's attendance case is sent to court, a committee will take into consideration how many absences were excused and unexcused.
Students who arrive after 9am are considered ABSENT. This does not mean your child should stay home. Staying home will make your student fall behind by missing an entire day of instruction.
