VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE COUNTY STUDENT HANDBOOK! Please play special attention to the last sentence- YOU MUST SEEK PERMISSION BEFORE THE ACTIVITY.
 
Student Attendance Policy
ABSENCES/CHECK-OUTS/CHECK-INS
All students, regardless of age, enrolled in the Elmore County School System are required to be in continuous attendance at their designated school. Prompt and regular attendance at school provides students with the skills needed for future success and aids in the development of good character. While occasional absences are unavoidable, state law places the responsibility for regular attendance upon the parent/guardian. The Code of Alabama (16-28-15) requires that a written note from the parent/guardian stating the reason for the absence must confirm every absence (to include check-outs and check-ins) within three (3) school days. Failure to furnish the written explanation for the absence may result in the student being considered truant with the knowledge of the parent/guardian or person in control of the student. Participation in legitimate school activities or special reasons acceptable to the principal may be excused if permission is granted prior to the absence.
