You can get an excused absence if you need to miss school because of your child’s health care needs.
Times when your child might need health care include:
- taking your child to regular doctor’s appointments or other health care services,
- staying home to take care of your sick child, and
- taking your sick child to the doctor.
Warning: Some of these rules may be different if you attend a Charter School. Talk with your school counselor about your Charter School’s rules.
Ask your school office about who you should talk to when you need to miss school for your child’s health care needs.
