NEW Procedures for Student Absences..........
If a student is absent from school, we would appreciate a phone call from the parent/guardian notifying the school of the student's absence. Please call the attendance office at (426-4910) by 7:40 a.m. on the morning of the absence. Calls will not be accepted from the student. In addition to the phone call, when the student returns to school he/she must present a written and dated note signed by the parent/guardian or physician explaining the absence. Students will only be given 3 school days upon return to turn in the note. After 3 days the absence will remain UNEXCUSED
A maximum of ten (10) excused days each year may be excused with a signed note from a parent/guardian or doctor. If there are more than ten (10) days excused, a Medical Excuse Form must be completed, stating the student was seen in the doctor's office, and returned for review by school officials within three (3) days of the absence for the absence to be excused. (The Medical Excuse Form is located on the Health Services tab at www.kenton.ky12.ky.us or from the school office.)
Please see Hannah E. Sizemore, our Attendance Secretary, for additional information or if you have questions.
