Attendance and academic performance are closely related. To benefit fully from the instructional program, all students are expected to attend school regularly and to be on time for all classes, study halls, and homerooms. The Eau Claire Area School District attendance policies are designed to develop students' punctuality, self-discipline, and responsibility.
Parents/guardians are asked to contact the attendance office between 7:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on the day their son/daughter will be absent for a portion or full school day.
Parents/guardians must provide the school with written or verbal verification of absence. Students must report to the attendance office to pick up an Admission to Class Slip. After 24 hours from the date of the absence, should no call be received or written excuse provided, the absence will be considered unexcused.
