• Truancy-Sluffing

    Failure to attend school all or part of the day without a parent or legal excuse (illness, doctor’s appointment, funeral in the immediate family). If a student leaves campus they become the responsibility of the parent/guardian.  Consequences may include but are not limited to:

    2. A “U” citizenship grade may be given for that trimester.
    3. Parent notification.
    4. Detention and/or school service learning
    5. Possible loss of credit for excessive truancy.
    6. Repeated offenses may be dealt with according to the Richmond City Truancy Ordinance 99-4, district policy, and/or state law.
