Under present law, absences can be excused only for illness, quarantine, or medical and dental appointments. All other absences are recorded as unexcused.
Since the recent passage of a new law, the School District does not receive state funds for any absent student. You are encouraged to send your child to school regularly unless he or she is ill.
If your child is absent for any reason, the office must receive a telephone call verifying the absence, preferably before instruction begins.
The office telephone, 508-7307, has an answering machine on during non-school hours. Parents are welcome to leave a message. The regular voice mail number is 482-9457.
