Attendance

You may send a doctor’s or parent note to FPCHS attendance email: excusedfpcnotes@flaglerschools.com
 
State law and district attendance policy allow the parent to write notes to document and excuse up to ten days of student absence for illness or excusable reasons per year; five days in the first term (August–January) and five days in the second term (January–June).
 

Beyond those ten days, if a student has a serious reason to miss additional days, the school principal can review parent requests to excuse up to five more days per year, for a total of 15 days. That is a lot of time out of school especially when students have to make up the missed work and keep up with the new work. Students do not receive credit for work made up for unexcused absences which impact grades.
