Excessive School Absence Procedures
Upon a student reaching the fourth (4th) unexcused absence, in a class per year, a letter will be sent to the parent/guardian for notification.
Upon a student reaching the eighth (8th) unexcused absence, in a class, a letter will be sent home to the parent/guardian for notification and an intervention program will be developed.
When a student reaches eleven (11) unexcused absences in a class, the student will automatically be placed on No-Credit status. Notification will be sent to the parent/guardian. At this point, the parent/guardian may appeal to the grade level vice principal.

- Proms and/or cotillions, dances
- Office, library or nurse’s aide
