Attendance Policy

The Clarence Central School District has determined that absences, tardiness and early dismissals will be considered excused or unexcused according to the following standards:

  • EXCUSED:  An absence, tardy or early dismissal may be excused due to personal illness, death in the family, impassable roads, religious observance, quarantine, required court or legal obligation, appointment at a health clinic or suspension.
  • UNEXCUSED:  Absences not mentioned above include, but are not limited to, vacation, shopping, babysitting, oversleeping, cold weather or missing the bus.  Any reason not listed as excused shall be deemed unexcused unless the Building Principal determines otherwise.

Reporting Absences

  1. If your child is going to be absent, call the Attendance Office at 407-9200 Ext. #2 before 8:45 am each day your student is absent. Please leave your child’s first and last name and the reason for his/her absence on the voicemail.  
  2. Students are required to submit a written excuse to the Attendance Office upon your return.
