Illegal Absences

Illegal Absences

If the parent/guardian has not called or submitted a form of written communication prior to the start of the school day on the day of the student’s absence, the absence will be documented as illegal. In addition, failure to meet the requirement of submitting a physician’s excuse for three (3) or more consecutive days of absence will result in the absences being classified as illegal. Please refer to (District Policy # 204)

An absence becomes an illegal absence for all students of compulsory age. A student who does not return to school shall be carried on the active attendance roll for a maximum of ten (10) days. After the parent or guardian has been notified by the School District, the child will be withdrawn from the active attendance roll of the District.
