Margaret A. Fain Elementary School

Where Eagles Soar

Atlanta Public Schools

 
The following guidelines have been established to minimize absenteeism. The Georgia Board of Education allows for documented absences due to:
  • Personal illness
  • Death or serious illness in the family
  • Recognized religious holidays
  • Absences caused by order of government
  • Inclement weather or dangerous conditions as determined by the school district
Students who are absent or tardy are required to provide a written note from the parent/legal guardian explaining the absence(s) and/or tardiness upon the student’s return to school. Failure to submit such notes after returning to school will result in an unexcused absence being recorded. For more detailed information regarding attendance, please review pages 35-40 of the Student Handbook.
