The school laws (53-24-1) of the State of Utah require children to attend school in sufficient quantity to insure the educational benefit of extensive class discussion, group work, and achievement. It is the responsibility of the parents In accordance with SSSD Policy, or legal guardians to insure that their school-age children attend on a regular basis. It is recognized that extenuating circumstances may arise which prevent a student from attending school. These absences, along with prior approved absences, are classified as excused. Utah law requires action by schools in matters of extreme absenteeism.
STEPS TO FOLLOW WHEN YOU ARE ABSENT
1.The parent or guardian should phone the school and inform the office of the absence.
2.If no phone contact has been made the date of the absence, the parent or guardian must send a signed, dated note or phone call excusing his/her child when the child returns to school. (A student will have one school day beyond his/her return to deliver a parental excuse note.) If contact has not been made by note or phone call, the absences will remain unexcused.
