R 2310 Student Attendance (Central Elementary School)

A student shall not miss more than six (6) days per semester even if the absence is excused pursuant to district policy. It is the responsibility of the parents and student to see that the requirements of the attendance policy are met, and all work missed is completed. When a student misses more than 6 days in a semester, parent contact will be made, as well as a possible juvenile office referral.  

Students missing more than 12 days in a school year without extenuating circumstances may be recommended for summer school and/or be subject to retention.

If a student making passing grades misses more than six (6) days per semester grades may not be awarded.  Before a final decision is made on denying credit to a student with excessive absences, the student will be afforded an appropriate due process hearing that is in accordance with Board policy and state law.

Verify Absence

Please notify the school office to verify student absences the day of the absence.  For purposes of school notification, Central Elementary School will accept a parent/guardian phone call, fax, email or letter/note the day the student returns. A student who does not comply with this procedure may receive an unexcused absence. All doctor, dental, and/or counselor notes should be turned into the homeroom teacher the day the student returns. Central Elementary will attempt to notify parents by 10:00 am each day a student is absent.
