Attendance Policies

 

STUDENT ABSENCES AND EXCUSES

  Policy JH and JH-R

Unless excused, each student shall be in regular attendance at all scheduled classes and activities designated for pupil attendance by the school calendar.   Students shall be excused from attending scheduled classes or school activities for the following reasons:

a.         temporary illness or injury;

b.         absence approved by the school administrator;

c.         absence due to physical, mental or emotional disability; and  

d.         absence caused by detention from a court or law enforcement authority

Under provisions of the Colorado School Attendance Law, the principal has the responsibility to approve or disapprove student absences.   The principal shall require such documentation as is deemed appropriate as the basis for approval or non-approval of student absences, including, in appropriate cases, requiring that student or parental requests for absence be made in advance and written statements from medical sources authenticating the legitimacy of past absences.   Unless appropriately documented, student absences shall be unexcused.   Absences due to disciplinary suspensions or expulsion shall not be considered "excused."

          

The information above is just a part of policy (JH and JH-R), which can be accessed through the District Web Site (http://www.mesa.k12.co.us/).   If you would like a copy of this or any policy, you may visit the main office and we would be glad to make a copy for you.
