EXCUSED AND UNEXCUSED ABSENCES

Excused absences are illness, disability caused by an accident, funerals, medical and legal appointments, or other justifiable causes as determined by the principal.  All other absences are unexcused.  Personal business and personal grooming appointments are considered unexcused absencesUnexcused absences will result in ISS.  If in doubt about how an absence will be classified, request a determination from the principal in advance.  Students may miss 6 days a semester with parent excused absence.  Doctor excused absences with a doctor’s note do not count against those days.  After a total of 6 days have been accumulated a doctor note will be required for the day to count as an excused absence.  Any unexcused absence over the 6-day mark could result in ISS. Each day unexcused will result in loss of credit for the day and will be reported to the county attorney when legally bound. Seniors in jeopardy of exceeding days excused may result in loss of graduation ceremony privileges.
