Attendance at school is critical for students to learn and grow. Our school board provides the following options for students that are not able to be at school:
- Excused Absence: This is your typical sick day for illness. Students must be fever-free for 24 hours prior to returning to school. To excuse your child’s absence for a sick day simply send a note or email to your child’s teacher upon his/her return to school. Any required work that is missed due to an excused absence should be completed within a few days after returning.
- Pre-Approved Absence: Use this option when traveling or for family events. To request a pre-approved absence email our Principal (Benning@fultonschools.org) one week prior to trip for approval. Any required work that is missed due to a pre-approved absence should be completed within a few days after returning.
- Participated Remotely: This is a new option that allows students to be counted as present even though they are not physically at school for up to 5 days each semester. All requests for Participated Remotely requires prior approval 72 hours in advance by completing and submitting the Participated Remotely Request Form to our Assistant Principal, Ms. Morris (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In order to be counted as present for each Participated Remotely day, students must complete 45 minutes of iReady Reading and 45 minutes of iReady Math each day before midnight. Failure to complete these requirements will result in an unexcused absence. Any required work that is missed during the day must be completed within 48 hours.
