Attendance Policy

Attendance Policy

Not surprisingly, attendance at Keigwin is extremely important. Being present for the teacher's classroom instruction is essential for each student's academic success. However, if your child is going to miss school please make sure you call the school before 9:00 a.m. and state the reason for the absence. Students with 10 or more absences will be required to submit a doctor's note for any absences beyond 10 days. A parent alone cannot excuse absences after the 15th absence. The only documentation that will be considered for absences after 10 days is a doctor's note or a letter from a legal agency explaining the reason for the absences. Therefore, please encourage your child to attend school regularly for the remainder of the year.

If your child is going to be absent for more than 1 day and you would like to pick up some school work please make that request to the main office by 10:00 a.m. and you will be able to pick up the homework folder by 3:00 p.m. that day.
