    Elementary Attendance Policy
     
     Oklahoma State law requires school officials to keep attendance records and report excessive absences to the District Attorney's office.  Ten (10) unexcused absences within a semester constitutes excessive and thereby may be reported to the District Attorney's office.  Two (2) tardies constitutes one absence.  A tardy is defined as a student not being in the classroom when the last bell has stopped ringing.
     
    Criteria for excused absences:
          1.  Any medical treatment that is substantiated by a physicians written
               statement (The physician statement must be submitted to the school
              within five (5) days of the student's return and is subject to
               verification by a school official).
         2.   Forty-eight (48) hours to treat and clear head lice with appropriate
               medical documentation upon return to school
         3.   Any event that is approved as a school activity
         4.   A court subpoena
         5.   Religious holidays or activities
         6.   Bereavement (documentation may need to be presented)
     
    Family vacations are not exempted and such absences will count toward the
    maximum absences allowed within the semester.
     
    **The elementary school attendance policy falls under the umbrella of the general attendance policy, therefore continual attendance violations could result in a student receiving a failing grade for that grading period.**
