Attendance Matters! Strive for 95!
Parents and Guardians,
Illegal absences are in violation of compulsory attendance provision of the public school code of laws of Pennsylvania.
If your child is 6 years old or in grades K-3 and has 10 illegal/unexcused absences you as the parent may be referred to the Department of Human Services (DHS) for truancy.
If your child is in grades 4-8 you may be referred to Truancy court. If your child is referred to DHS or Truancy court, a DHS agency provider will be assigned to your case and will begin home visits. You are encouraged to improve your child’s attendance.
Under Pennsylvania law, all students must attend school, every day.
Special attendance requirements for an 8th-grade student:
He or she may have:
- No more than 8 excused absences (This does not pertain to long-term illness)
- No more than 3 unexcused absences
- No more than 5 late occurrences
If these requirements are not met, your child may be excluded from some or all of 8th grade year-end activities.
