Excessive Absence Procedure
The principal will notify parents and confer with students who miss 10 or more days of school per year. A medical excuse or verification of the death of a family member will be required for absences 11 and 12. All absences beyond 10 per year will be unexcused and no credit given unless medical verification from a physician is provided and approved by the building principal. The medical excuse must be turned in upon the student's return to school. The principal will work closely with parent/guardian on all medical related absences. A maximum of two blocks are excused for doctor and dentist appointments unless an exception in writing is received from the attending physician. All medical excuses should be originals and are subject to verification.
