Unauthorized absence from school is considered truancy and will be treated as such.
Truancy includes absence from any class, study hall, or activity during the school day for which the student is scheduled and where the parents are not aware of the absence.
Disciplining action will be taken beginning with notification of parents. Continued violation may lead to suspension or expulsion from school, as outlined in the building attendance policy.
