MPS district policy states that only 10 excusable absences can be accepted per school year, and each requires a parent’s written note. Medically authorized documentation is also required after 10 absences.Students are listed as truants if no parental note/authorized documentation is submitted to a school within 3 days of an absence. A formal meeting between parents and school staff is required for habitual truancy (5 or more days of unexcused absences within a school year).


We strongly encourage parents to send their teens to school daily to ensure continued success in our challenging IB program.
