If your child is out of school, please call the office to let us know. If Mr. Benjamin or Mrs. Dyer don't hear from you the absence will remain unexcused. When your K-6th grade child has reached 7 unexcused absences they become truant. When your 7th-12th grade student reaches 10 unexcused absences they become truant. When a child is determined to be truant action must be taken by the school.
