Day 3 of excuse/unexcused absence: the secretary will mail a letter that explains chronic absenteeism.

Day 5 of excused/unexcused absence: a parent meeting will be arranged by a member of the school’s attendance team.

At 8 excused/unexcused absences: the school Social Worker and/or Family Liaison will conduct a home visit depending on the individual’s situation and communication from parent/guardian.

At 10 days of excused/unexcused absence: a PPT will be conducted.
