Attendance

Attendance

It is important that your child attend school.  However, if they are running a fever they need to stay at home.  They need to be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.  If your child has a doctor’s appointment, please send in a doctor’s note so we can have your child’s absence marked as excused.

The following is the school policy for Excessive Absences:

If a child accumulates 10 absences in a school year the building administrator will send a letter to inform the parent/guardian of this and of our concerns.

If the child reaches 15 absences in a school year the building administrator will inform the local police department of a potential truancy issue.  The police department will then contact or visit the child’s home to discuss the truancy with the parents.

Ÿ  If the absences reach 20 in a school year, referrals must be made to the Local Police Department and possibly, the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.

**Vacation days are counted as unexcused absences.**
