  • By law 10 is 10 - Students are allowed 10 excused absences (all or part of a day) per school year.
  • Please notify the office prior to or by 8:45 AM regarding any absence.

  • If your child is absent more than 5 minutes from ANY period, they will be marked absent for that period.
  • Early departures are also counted as absences.
  • You will need to work with the building principal in advance for any absences after 10 excused absences.
