Doctor notes will be accepted and considered excused. Also, if the
Doctors note states the student may return to school on the day of
the office visit, and the student does not return that day, the
absence will be considered unexcused. If the student returns
within the same day the "tardy" will be excused.
Cumberland County Board Policy states: Written
excuses must be submitted for absences and tardiness within five
(5) school days after the student returns to school.
Each time your child is absent, you should send an
excuse to the attendance office with the following

warning will go home to be signed. The parent/guardian will be

attending an out of zone school will be required to attend the
school for which they are zoned. Five unexcused tardies will equal

school day will be a student disciplinary matter and will be
handled by individual schools at the building level.
