Attendance Policy


Alabama law requires all students between the ages of 6 and 17 to attend school regularly during the entire school term. Consistent school attendance is one of the keys to academic progress. Parents can help their students succeed by making sure of their attendance except when illness or a family emergency arises. When absences occur, a note from the parent or doctor is required. If after three days you have not sent a written excuse to school, then the absence stays as unexcused. If you receive a warning letter entitled, "Montgomery Public Schools Notice of Unexcused Absences" then the school did not receive the note stating the reason for your child’s absence. Please call the office (260 – 1015) to discuss the letter. Failure to send a note for your child’s absence may cause you to have to appear in court. **Please read the Montgomery Public Schools’ Code of Student Behavior for the law of the state of Alabama concerning attendance.
