Responsibility to Report

Excused Absences

The legal custodial parent or legal guardian of the child must notify the school of the student's absence prior to the absence or when the absence occurs. If your student will be absent or tardy, please call the 24-hr attendance line 602-347-3111 prior to 9 a.m. the day of the absence.

Absences shall be excused for reasons such as illness, doctor appointment, bereavement, family emergencies, or observance of major religious holidays of the family's faith. All absences incurred while registered in WESD schools that exceed a total of 18 for the school year will be reported as unexcused despite the reason. Refer to Arizona Dept. of Education http://www.azed.gov/finance/school-finance-external-guidelines/ for details.
