Attendance Policy

Board Policy


Absences for Religious Purposes BP #46014

Students with the written consent of their parents or guardians may be excused from school in order to participate in religious exercises or to receive moral and religious instruction. Religious instruction will be excused only if the student attends at least the minimum school day. Students shall be excised for this purpose on no more than four school days per month.


Absence for Justifiable Personal Reasons BP #48205

Good attendance is important to a student’s success in school. Parents must contact the school office in writing or by phone to report their student’s absence within 24 hours. The absence shall be considered excised when the absence is due to justifiable personal reasons including:

  • Illness
  • Accident
  • Having a doctor or dentist appointment
  • Attending the funeral services of a member of his or her immediate family
  • Parent returns from or is going to active combat duty

Unless approved by the principal or designee, other reasons for being absent are unacceptable and shall be considered unexcused. A student with three (3) or more unexcused absences is considered truant.
