• Welcome to the Attendance Policies and Procedures Page

    Central Bucks School District attendance policies conform to the Pennsylvania School Code sections 1326 to 1333 dealing with compulsory school attendance.

    “Every child of compulsory school age having a legal residence in this Commonwealth… is required to attend a day school in which the subjects and activities prescribed by the standards of the State Board of Education are taught.”

     Parents and guardians should submit absence requests via the Parent Portal. Parents can request a full day absence, early dismissal, or late arrival.

    • Absence requests will be reviewed by School Attendance Staff and approved or denied.
    • Requests made using the Parent Portal will also serve as the excuse for the absence. Parents will not be required to submit an excuse either electronic or written.
    • Parents and guardians can also still call the school to report an absence at 267-893-4300. 

     In addition, when a student is absent from school, but the school did not receive communication from the parent or guardian, the following communication will be sent:

    • A text message will be sent midmorning notifying the parent or guardian of the absence
    • An email will also be sent at the end of the school day reminding the parent or guardian that the student was marked absent.

     Information regarding how to use the Parent Portal to report an absence can be found here.
