Attendance at school is one of the greatest predictors of success for students. The key to regular school attendance is parent involvement and commitment. When parents value the educational experience and are committed to their children’s education, their children are more likely to attend school consistently and therefore are more likely to graduate.
Attendance at school is essential to the educational success of students at Sauk Rapids-Rice District 47 schools. Daily attendance is required by the State of Minnesota for all school age students. (See District Policy #503–Student Attendance on the district website.) Our high school expects and supports exemplary attendance.
Please see the student handbook for the complete policy.
Students in activities must be in attendance during 3rd, 4th, and 5th hours in order to participate or practice in an activity the same day.
Any unexcused absence during the school day will result in no participation in activities that evening. School sponsored activities are considered class periods. Students in evening activities are expected to be in all of their classes the following day, or will not be allowed to participate in the next contest. No early release will be given for students leaving for an activity to get clothes, food, etc.
