Lawful/Unlawful Absences Affect on Grades

Students who are lawfully absent from class will have the opportunity to make up missed work.  The number of days allowed to make up missed work will be the same as the number of days of lawful absences.  The teacher has 48 hours to provide make-up work.  Lawful absences include:

  • Death in the immediate family
  • Illness of the child
  • Court summons
  • Hazardous weather conditions
  • Work approved/sponsored by the school
  • Observance of a religious holiday
  • State emergency
  • Suspension
  • Enrolled students who are not in compliance yet with immunization requirements.
  • Lack of authorized transportation (school bus fails to pick up a student).
 

 

Students are unlawfully absent if they are absent from school for any reason other than those defined above.  Students with unlawful absences will receive a “failing” grade for work given when they are not in attendance, which will be averaged with other daily grades.  The school is not required to provide make-up work, either before or after the absence.
