Attendance Policy

As a parent, you play the most important role in the education of your child. In order to make this a successful school year, your child must be in the classroom every day possible. It is the parents’ responsibility to make sure excuses are submitted to the school in a timely manner.
One of the most important factors for the success of your child’s education is regular school attendance. When absent, your child is missing new information and skills that are being taught each day.

Regular school attendance is essential to gaining a quality education. Students need to participate in the experiences, discussion, activities, and special projects integral to the learning process. State law requires that students between the ages of six and sixteen attend school except for the specific reasons listed below. Consequently, regular attendance is essential to maximizing academic achievement, and parents and legal guardians have a legal responsibility to assure that students attend school regularly.

A student shall not be absent from school or from any class or other required school hours except for conditions specified below, or upon written permission of the teacher, principal, or other authorized school official. Absences will be excused if validated for the following reasons:

The following process will be followed in all schools:

  • Personal illness or attendance in school endangering a student’s health or the health of others
  • Serious illness or death in a student’s immediate family necessitating absence from school
  • Court order or an order by a governmental agency, including pre-induction physical examinations for service in the armed forces, mandating absence from school
  • Observation of religious holidays, necessitating absence from school
  • Conditions rendering attendance impossible or hazardous to student health or safety
  • Participation as a Page of the Georgia General Assembly
  • To allow visitation with a parent or legal guardian serving in the U.S. armed forces or National Guard, students will be granted up to five days of excused absences per school year to visit with the parent prior to the parent’s deployment or during the parent’s leave.

For an absence to be an excused absence, a student’s parent or legal guardian must submit a written excuse within five (5) days of the student’s return to school and shall specifically state the date(s) and reason for the absence. A student absent from class in excess of (10) days may be asked to furnish school officials a doctor’s certificate, or the parents may be asked to make arrangements for a conference with the principal or his/her designee.

Student Sign-outs:
To be able to receive credit for the full day, a student cannot sign out before 11:45 or half of the school day. Absence will be excused or unexcused according to the criteria listed above and must be approved by the Principal.

Assignments:
It is the student or parent responsibility to get assignments from the teacher so the student will not fall behind in a particular class

The Georgia Compulsory School Attendance Law requires that we notify the parent/guardian of these absences and that your and/or your child may be subject to legal consequences if more unexcused absences occur.

We are committed to providing the best education for your child. Please work with us to improve your child’s school attendance so that he/she will be able to fully benefit from the educational experience.

Thank you for your cooperation

Política de asistencia

Como padre, usted juega el papel más importante en la educación de sus hijos. Para que este sea un exitoso año escolar, sus hijos deben estar en el salón de clases todos los días. Es responsabilidad de los padres asegurarse de que se presenten las excusas por faltas a la escuela.

 

Uno de los factores más importantes para el éxito de la educación de su hijo es la asistencia regular a la escuela. Cuando está ausente, su hijo se pierde de información y actividades nuevas que se le enseñan cada día.

 

La asistencia regular a la escuela es esencial para obtener una educación de calidad. Los estudiantes deben participar en las experiencias, debates, actividades y proyectos especiales integrales al proceso de aprendizaje. La ley estatal requiere que los estudiantes entre las edades de seis y dieciséis años asistan a la escuela, excepto por las razones específicas que se enumeran a continuación. En consecuencia, la asistencia regular es esencial para maximizar el rendimiento académico, y los padres y tutores legales tienen la responsabilidad legal de garantizar que los estudiantes asistan a la escuela regularmente.

 

Un estudiante no debe estar ausente de la escuela o de cualquier clase u otro horario escolar requerido, excepto por las condiciones especificadas a continuación, o con el permiso por escrito del maestro, el director u otro funcionario escolar autorizado. Las ausencias serán justificadas si se validan por las siguientes razones:

 

Se seguirá el siguiente proceso en todas las escuelas:

• Por alguna enfermedad personal que pudiera poner en peligro su salud o la salud de otros.

• Enfermedad grave o muerte en la familia inmediata de un estudiante que requiere ausencia de la escuela

• Orden judicial o una orden de una agencia gubernamental, incluidos los exámenes físicos previos a la inducción para el servicio en las fuerzas armadas, que exige la ausencia de la escuela

• Observación de feriados religiosos, que requieren ausencia de la escuela.

• Condiciones que hacen que la asistencia sea imposible o peligrosa para la salud o seguridad del estudiante

• Participación en la Asamblea General de Georgia

• Por visita a un padre o tutor legal que sirva en las fuerzas armadas de los EE. UU. O en la Guardia Nacional, a los estudiantes se les otorgarán hasta cinco días de ausencias justificadas por año escolar.

 

Para que una ausencia sea una excusa justificada, el padre o tutor legal del estudiante debe presentar una excusa por escrito dentro de los cinco (5) días posteriores al regreso del estudiante a la escuela y debe indicar específicamente la (s) fecha (s) y el motivo de la ausencia. Se le puede pedir a un estudiante que ha estado ausente de la clase por (10) días que presente a los funcionarios de la escuela un certificado médico, o se puede pedir a los padres que hagan los arreglos para una conferencia con el director o su designado.

 

La Ley de Georgia de asistencia Obligatoria a la Escuela requiere que notifiquemos al padre / tutor de estas ausencias y que usted y / o su hijo pueden estar sujetos a consecuencias con la ley si ocurren más ausencias injustificadas.

 

Estamos comprometidos a proporcionar la mejor educación para sus hijos. Trabaje con nosotros para mejorar la asistencia a la escuela de sus hijos para que él / ella pueda beneficiarse plenamente de la experiencia educativa.

 

Gracias por su cooperación
