Attending school on time and on a consistent basis is a crucial part of your child's academic success. As such, we would like to go over our KUSD attendance policy to ensure that everyone is informed and that we are all doing our best in having our students here, everyday and on time.

A child cannot be excused more than ten (10) days in a full school year. As per Wisconsin State Statutes, all absences beyond ten (10) days would be marked unexcused and treated accordingly. Any days missed after the 10 days, no matter at what point during the school year, will need a medical excuse for each day they missed after that 10th day. If a medical note is not received, the days are marked unexcused or truant.
