    • The child's name and the teacher's name
    • Date the absence will occur
    • Reason for absence
    • If your child will be late, do they need a school lunch? Which option?
    • Approximately when will your child arrive at school?

    What is an "excused" absence?
    The state of Kansas delegates to the Board of Education the responsibility of determining reasons for excusable absences. As Board of Education designees, building administrators will determine if an absence is excused or unexcused. According to the Board of Education policy, the following are recognized as excusable reasons for absences:

    • Personal illness (A physician's note may be required)
    • Serious illness or death of a member of the family or close friend
    • Obligatory religious observances of the student's own faith
    • Participation in a school-approved student activity
    • Verified physician or dentist appointments
    • Court appearance
    • Emergency situations requiring immediate action
    • An absence which has been requested in writing and approved in advance by the building administration

     Thank you.
