Attendance Policy Reminders

As a reminder, students are limited to no more than 10 excused or unexcused absences during the school year. Five early dismissals or tardies equal one absence. Absences must be made up on Saturdays to be designated during 2nd semester. More than 10 excused or unexcused absences with no make-up time will put the student's promotion to the next grade level at risk. Waivers to this policy may be requested in extreme circumstances.


If your student is going to be absent, please complete the student absence excuse form that is found on our school website under Quick Links.  You may receive a state generated letter from Brawley Middle if your student has accumulated several absences.  The language in some of these documents is quite harsh and states serious implications.  Please understand that these letters are required and parallel some of the district form letters in the past.  If at any time you have questions about a letter, please call Mr. Dancy or Mrs Elliott so we can clarify further.
