Attendance Policy

posted Sep 3, 2015, 5:56 AM by Brooke Belka   [ updated Jan 4, 2017, 11:38 AM by Shannon Powell ]



EXCUSED ABSENCES: Parent/doctor verified illness, family emergencies, medical/dental appointments, family vacation/sporting events, court appearance, religious holidays, religious instruction (not to exceed 3 hours/week) or exceptional circumstance.


UNEXCUSED ABSENCES: Oversleeping, running late, need for sleep or rest, missed the bus, arriving to school 20 minutes after the start of school or checking out more than 20 minutes before the end of the day without an acceptable reason, leaving school during the regular school day without approval of a school official, or other non-emergency situations.

Minnesota State Law concerning education neglect states that parents or guardians of a child, under 12 years of age enrolled in school, are held accountable for any unexcused absences. Every child, regardless of age enrolled in school, must follow the compulsory attendance law. Consequences of unexcused absences are as follows:

  • After 3 unexcused absences - parents notified by letter

  • After 5 unexcused absences - second letter sent to parents and county attorney’s office notified

  • After 7 unexcused absences - school administration requests to file a truancy/educational neglect petition with the county attorney. Please refer to policy 503 located in the district office, the building principal office, or on our school website.

ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES: There are occasions when, due to illness, injury, or an emergency, students need to be absent from school. These absences require the parent to notify the school. Please contact the school prior to 8:00 am.  You may call the office at 477-6802 or email at siwen@dgf.k12.mn.us.

Please provide the following information:

  • Student’s name

  • Classroom teacher name

  • Reason for student’s absence

  • Dates of absence

After cross checking with classroom attendance records, attendance personnel will call the families of those children who have not had a call made on their behalf within the day. This provides a check on the location and safety of all children at DGF Elementary.


TARDINESS: It is important for your student to be at school on time (8:25 AM) and ready to learn.  Students are to report directly to their classrooms.  Parents must accompany their students to the office when running late.  An admit to class slip will be necessary for the student to get into class once the school day has started. A tardy is defined as arrival to class after the first bell at the start of the day, following transitional time, or at the start of afternoon class.  Arriving any time after 20 minutes is considered an absence and not a tardy.  If tardy, the student must report to the office to receive an admit to class slip.  Tardies are cumulative but are cleared at the end of each semester. If tardiness becomes an issue, a meeting will be set up with our Truancy Intervention Officer.
