Absences

Parents will be required to submit documentation of non-exempted student absences to the registrar for the Bulloch County Schools Virtual Program.  Up to five (5) absences may be excused by parent e-mail to the Virtual Program registrar, indicating the absence was for an excusable reason.  Absences beyond five (5) will require submission of acceptable documentation, as required by JBD: Absences and Excuses.

In certain circumstances where a student has already demonstrated mastery of standards expected to be covered,  a teacher may determine that a student’s presence in a particular meeting is not required.  In this case, the teacher will notify the student / parent of the exemption and attendance will not be required.

Students experiencing significant health challenges that may qualify the student for Hospital / Homebound should inform the child’s homeroom teacher immediately.
