Pebblebrook Student Attendance

Consistent school attendance is vital for your academic success. It also helps build a foundation of commitment to attendance later in life. Students are to attend all classes each and every day.

According to the Georgia Compulsory Attendance Law, your absence or tardy is EXCUSED under the following conditions:
  • You are personally ill and your attendance in school would risk your health or the health of others.
  • You have an immediate family member who is seriously ill or who has died and your absence is reasonably necessary.
  • You are on special and recognized religious holidays observed by your faith. You are under governmental order (such as armed service pre- induction examination or court order)
  • Your attendance at school would be hazardous to health or safety due to conditions defined by the administration.
  • You are serving as a page in the Georgia General Assembly (under certain conditions)

*Absences for any other reason than those indicated above may be deemed unexcused. "Family Emergency" is NOT an excused absence.


Returning to School after an Absence

You MUST provide an excuse note from your parent/guardian within three (3) days of your absence or tardy. The excuse note must be brought to the Attendance Office. This note must explain why you were absent from or tardy to school. If you do not bring a note by the third day after you return to school, your absence or tardy will automatically be marked UNEXCUSED and REMAIN UNEXCUSED.
If you are absent for eleven (11) consecutive days or more during the school year, you should furnish a doctor’s statement verifying the illness that is responsible for your excessive absences.
The principal or his/her designee is authorized by law to require verification of all statements explaining a student’s absence from class or school when probable cause exists for questioning validity of a student’s statement regarding absence from school.
