Attendance Policy

Bonneville Elementary School- Attendance Policy

School attendance policy is determined by Florida law.  Absences from school are recorded as unexcused absences unless they meet the following criteria for an excused absence as set by Orange County School Board:

An absence is excused for:

  • Illness, injury, or other insurmountable condition of the student or illness or death of a family member in the student's immediate family (student's brother, sister, parents).
  • Recognized (or established) religious holidays and/or religious instruction.
  • Medical appointments with a doctor's note.
  • Participation in an approved activity or class of instruction held at another site.
  • A prearranged absence of educational value with the Principal's approval.
  • Head lice infestation- up to a maximum of four (4) days during the school year.

Any student withdrawn from class shall be marked as "Early Departure- EDU" (unexcused).  Five (5) unexcused Early Departures will count as one unexcused absence once a student has met the (5) unexcused absences in a calendar month or ten (10) unexcused absences in a 90 day threshold.
