What if my child is absent from school?

Posted by:

Florida Statues and Leon County School District policy state that it is the responsibility of the student's parents/guardians to notify the school when their child will not be in attendance.  If the student has a prolonged illness (i.e. mumps, chicken pox) notification on the first day of absence will be sufficient.

It is the responsibility of the parent/guardians to make sure their children have recovered from contagious diseases before returning to school.

A written excuse from the parent/guardian is required when a student has been absent or if the child is late to school or leaves early because of a doctor's appointment.
