Based upon our District's education and community needs, values and priorities, the School District has determined that absences, tardiness, and early departures will be considered excused or unexcused according to the following standards.
a) Excused: An absence, tardiness or early departure may be excused if due to personal illness, illness or death in the family, impassable roads due to inclement weather, religious observance, quarantine, required court appearances, attendance at health clinics, military obligations or other such reasons as may be approved by the Board of Education.
b) Unexcused: An absence, tardiness or early departure is considered unexcused if the reason for the lack of attendance does not fall into the above categories (e.g., family vacation, hunting, babysitting, haircut, obtaining learner's permit, road test, oversleeping, child's attendance at the parental workplace).
If an absence should occur, the parents should contact the student's House Office immediately.
If a student misses a Regents examination, he or she will need to contact their school counselor.
