Regular school attendance is vital to a child's success in school. When a child is absent from school due to illness, the parent must call the school on the date of the illness to report the absence. If a child misses more than 15 days of school per year, parents must provide a doctor's note to excuse further absences. Excused absences are acceptable, but unexcused absences can become a problem.
If a child accumulates a minimum of 15 unexcused absences within 90 days, it violates Florida's Compulsory School Attendance Law. The violation could have legal consequences for the parent and/or the student. The School Board has recently adopted more specific policies for excessive unexcused tardies. These absences will now count towards the unexcused absence count. For example, 5 unexcused tardies will equal 1 unexcused absence.
Please help us improve our students' rate of attendance. The more our children attend school, the more they learn. Contact your school social worker, teacher, or guidance counselor if you need help getting your child to attend school regularly and on-time every day.
