Brown Middle School

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.
