Regular attendance is essential to a student’s success in school and is required by South Carolina law. Ten or more unexcused
absences may result in your child being retained in the same grade . A note from the parent concerning each absence is required within three days or it will result in an unexcused absence. When visiting a doctor, make sure you get a doctor’s excuse. After five tardies and/or three absences without excuses, parents will be notified to attend a truancy conference at school to create a plan to improve tardiness and/or absences. If the problem continues, the parent will be requested to meet with CCSD’s Truancy Officer. Students are recognized weekly, monthly, and quarterly for perfect attendance. Parents are recognized as “Perfect Parents” their child receives an award for coming to school each day for each semester. Parents will receive certificates and are invited to lunch with the principal and their child.
