State law mandates that a student be in regular attendance at school.  It is your responsibility to nurture and promote your child's attendance in school.  Prompt and punctual attendance is a positive habit that will benefit your child throughout his/her life.  You are to notify the school if your child is to be absent.  If no notification is received, you will be contacted by the school office.  Documentation of parent contact will be made in the student's folder.

Excused Absences

Students will be issued an excused absence provided a note from you explaining the nature of the absence is presented by the student to the office upon returning to school.  The reasons for absence must fall in one of the following categories:

    personal illness
    serious illness in family
    death in family
    certain religious holidays

Students will be allowed to make up missed work according to guidelines established by the Monroe City School Board.

Unexcused Absences

Students are required to make up unexcused absences before they can successfully complete their assignment time in DAP.  The days may be added to the end of their assignment to return to the home school.
