Attendance

The Board of Education believes that regular attendance is essential to achieving success in school. Education is a total process based upon continual communication and shared responsibilities among parents, students, teachers and school. As students mature and progress through the educational system, they should increasingly assume responsibility for regular attendance. However, parents have a legal and moral responsibility to require regular attendance at school.

For attendance purposes, each period will count 1/7 of a school day. Total absences exceeding six (6) days per semester will be considered a violation of the school attendance policy and may result in loss of credit for the course/courses affected. Subsequent absences may result in the parent/legal guardian being served with a notice of warning. Continued absences may result in charges being filed by the Juvenile Office for non-compliance of Missouri Compulsory Attendance Law 167.031 or referral to the Division of Social Services, Children’s Division, for educational neglect by way of the hotline.
