State Law requires students to attend school 90% of the school year.  If your child has more than 8 unexcused absences during a semester, we are required to report their names to law enforcement.  Students' absences can be excused if we have a doctor's note or you can call to let us know that they are running fever, vomitting, or have other contagious ilnesses.  We need a call on the day the student is absent in order to excuse the absence.
