Attendance Office


Our goal is to educate all children.

We cannot be successful if children are not in school.


Research states that regular school attendance will enhance the normal program of students. Therefore, it is imperative that students attend school daily, and are on time. Whenever students are absent from school, a note explaining the reason for the absence must b sent on the day the student returns to school. The only excused absences accepted by the state are for illnesses, medical appointments, religious observance, or funeral attendance for an immediate family member. We encourage you to try and schedule you child’s doctor and dental appointments after school hours. If this is not possible, you must check your child out at the main office. Please be warned that frequent absences by students will trigger an investigation by the district attorney’s office.

It is illegal for a child to be absent for the following reasons:

  • Assisting with babysitting
  • Doing housework
  • Running errands
  • Helping to care for others in the family
  • Visiting or entertaining friend relatives or other guests
  • Lack of clothing (if in need, see Health Assistant)
  • Over sleeping
  • Lack of clean clothes
  • “Going to” various government agencies (i.e. social security, welfare, etc)
  • Not wanting to come to school
