Attendance and Truancy during COVID

Schools are taking attendance during remote learning. Contact the school if your child participated in remote learning, even if it wasn’t a live class, and you don’t think the school knows. If your child was not able to participate because of COVID-related problems, contact the school to excuse their absences.   

If your child has unexcused absences, the school should be reaching out to you to understand why and to help address barriers to learning.  Districts might refer students to Community Truancy Boards, however districts may not file truancy petitions until March 1st, 2021.

Please contact us if we can help.
