Absences for personal trips are not excused according to state guidelines. In order to be considered in attendance, a student must be present at least one-half of the school day. At the elementary level more than ten (10) absences a semester or 20 absences a year are considered excessive. If illness is given as the primary reason for non-attendance, the principal may request a physician's documentation.
