Carson City-Crystal Lower Elementary Attendance Policy

When a child is tardy or absent from school, the parent must contact the school office by note, email, phone, or in person to explain the reason for the absence.

  • Non-notification will result in an unexcused absence.

  • Absences not excused within 48 hours will be considered unexcused.

  • If your child has three (3) consecutive absences (3 days in a row), the parent/guardian must provide the school with a doctor statement of excuse.

  • After six (6) non-consecutive day absences in a marking period, the administration may require a doctor excuse for absences or at any time they deem necessary.
