Attendance Policy

APS Attendance Guidelines

Regular attendance is a key to school success. On time, daily attendance is a critical
component of this educational process. We understand sometimes families may need
support to help their child be successful. School staff can direct you to possible
resources within the school community. Teachers take attendance daily.

• A parent/guardian must notify the school at 881-9797 ext. 1, when a student is
going to be absent.
Absences may be excused for the following reasons with appropriate documentation:
• Illness (including chronic illness documented on a health plan, IEP or 504 plan)
• Limited family emergencies; family deaths
• Medical, health or legal appointments
• Suspensions
• Religious commitment
All absences for other reasons are unexcused.
