Student Absence Information
We know students may miss school for illness, emergencies, or for religious reasons, but we want to see every student in school every day. Regular school attendance is an important factor in student success at Berkeley County Schools.
If a student must miss school, for one or more days, the student must submit an excuse from his/her parent or guardian to the attendance office stating the reason for the absence in order to receive an excused absence.
About Student Absences
Notes must be submitted within two (2) schools days of the student’s return. The student shall submit this note to their first period teacher or grade level teacher.
