Preparing our students for tomorrow
through real world experiences today

Principal's Corner:

Dear Parent/Guardian:
Did You Know?

A student is chronically absent if he or she misses as few as two days of school a month.


House Bill 410 has changed the way attendance is calculated. In the past attendance was counted by days, however, with the passage of HB410 attendance is now counts by hours a student is not in school.

A new state law defines excessive absence and truancy:

Excessive absence: a student misses 38 or more hours of school in a single month, or 65 or more hours in one school year, with or without a legitimate excuse.

Truancy: a student is absent from school without legitimate excuse for 30 or more consecutive hours, 42 or more hours in one school month, or 72 or more hours in a school year.

Per the House Bill, school personnel will contact parents for conferences at intervals if a student is in danger of being classified as chronically absent and an attendance intervention plan will be developed with the parent and school team.

In compliance with the Missing Child Law of the State of Ohio, we ask all parents to notify the school office each day of a student's absence by calling 614-428-6564.
Thank you!
