Unexcused Absences

The Compulsory School Attendance Law of Pennsylvania states that when a child enters kindergarten he/she comes under the compulsory attendance laws. Policy 204 stipulates the following: 

Unexcused Absences

1. Absences from school with parents’ consent for reasons other than those considered excusable.

2. Leaving school during school hours and going directly home without office permission.

ALL UNLAWFUL ABSENCES WILL BE RECORDED AS SUCH WHEN A NOTE IS NOT RECEIVED WITHIN THREE DAYS OF THE ABSENCE AND WILL NOT BE CHANGED TO LAWFUL OR EXCUSED EVEN IF A NOTE (PARENT, PHYSICIAN, OR OTHERWISE) IS RECEIVED AFTER THE THREE-DAY PERIOD.
