State law and district attendance policy allow the parent to write notes to document and excuse up to 10 days of student absence for illness or excusable reasons per year; five days in the first term (August–January) and five days in the second term (January–June). Beyond those 10 days, if a student has a serious reason to miss additional days, the school principal can review parent requests to excuse up to five more days per year, for a total of 15 days. That is a significant amount of time out of school, especially when students have to make up the missed work and keep up with the new work. Students do not receive credit for work made up for unexcused absences which impacts grades. For more information, view Flagler Schools District Attendance Policies.

Students arriving after 9:00 a.m. will be documented as tardy. (Note: three tardies and/or sign-outs equal one absence) 
It is not always feasible, but please try to make all appointments after school.

Please complete this form within five days of returning to school.

If your student is absent due to a religious reason please complete the Religious Holiday Absence Form, and return the form three days before the date of the religious event.
