Absence Policy

Did you know attendance is critical to your child’s success?

  • It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to get their child to school.
  • Missing just five days of school means 30 hours of missed instructional time.
  • Starting in kindergarten, there is a direct link between absences and reading level.
  • One in ten kindergarten and first-grade students is chronically absent.
  • Students who are chronically absent are 7.5 times more likely to drop out of high school.

CHRONIC ABSENCE: 10 or more days


SATISFACTORY: 6 or fewer days
