What should I do if I receive a compulsory attendance warning letter in the mail?

Posted by:

The compulsory attendance warning letter is required by state law in order to make parents/guardians aware the student has accrued 3 or more unexcused absences and to inform them of the consequences that could result if a student continues to accumulate an excessive number of unexcused absences. If you feel that these unexcused absences are in error, please contact your school's attendance office as soon as possible. Remember, you can at any time view all of your student's absences through the Home Access Center (HAC). It is very important that you contact your son's or daughter's school immediately when they are absent from school--and even more importantly, to encourage them to be in school, if possible, each and every day!
