    Excused Absences

    Students must be in school unless the absence has been permitted or excused for one of the reasons listed below:

    1. Illness of student.
    2. Illness of an immediate family member.
    3. Death in the family.
    4. Religious holiday.

    6. Special event. Examples of special events include important public functions, educational enrichment activities, conferences, state/national competitions, college/university tour/visit, and exceptional cases of family need.

    8. Student has a communicable disease.

    Students on field trips, attending alternative to suspension programs, or in internal suspension programs are not considered absent.
