Notes From the Office

Student Absences

The Missing Children’s Act, Senate Bill #321, as well as Lakeview Board Policy, makes it necessary for every Lakeview student to be accounted for daily. If your child is absent, or is going to be late coming to school, you MUST inform us as soon as possible. We have an answer machine available from 3:30 p.m. until 8:15 a.m. If for some reason you were unable to leave a message during those times, please call the school by 9:00 a.m. We will attempt to reach you at home, your place of employment or we will call the other individuals listed on your child’s emergency card. If we are unable to reach anyone who knows why your child is not at school, in some instances, the local police will be contacted.

Parents must provide the school with their current home and work telephone numbers, home address, and emergency telephone numbers at all times. If these numbers change during the year, please notify the office immediately.

Medical Excuses: Student absences under medical excuse are not included in the 18 days identified above. Medical excuses, in order to be considered by the school administration, must be presented no later than 24 hours after the student’s return to school. It must clearly identify the reason for the doctor sanctioning the student’s absence from school, and must clearly note what date(s) are being approved by the doctor. The administration reserves the right to request a medical excuse from a student for absence at any time in order to clarify whether an absence is legally excused.

Tardiness to School: Tardiness to school will be excused or unexcused as per the same Ohio Revised Code guidelines and district interpretation as are daily absences. Tardiness or early dismissal of two hours of the school day shall be considered as one-half day of absence.

  • Early dismissals are counted the same as a tardy. If a tardy or early dismissal is due to a doctor appointment, a medical excused is required.

Unexcused Absence: Student absences for reasons that are not deemed “legal” under the Ohio Revised Code and unexcused under school district policy and procedures are considered unexcused. Students may not make up work missed during an unexcused absence, and discipline as per the student conduct code will result.
