• 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.”


    TO REPORT AN ABSENCE: Please send an email to lenapeattendance@cbsd.org. Please include the following in the subject line: student name, grade, date of absence, and absence reason.  For example, "Joe Smith, 7th, 12/3/18, fever".  There is no need to leave anything in the body of the email.  You may also leave a message on the Lenape 24 hour attendance hotline (267)893-2820.  Please include your student's name, grade, date of absence and reason in the voicemail.  We would also appreciate a call if your son or daughter will be coming in late to school.

    If you do not email or call, please send a note to school with your child upon their return.  You may use Absence/Tardy Excuse Note. The note should be turned-in at the main office.

    FOR APPOINTMENTS OR IF A STUDENT NEEDS TO LEAVE EARLY FOR OTHER REASONS please send a note in the morning with your student.  The student should bring the note to the Main Office as soon as they report to school to get a yellow pass to leave early.  If there's an unplanned appointment, please call our Main Office 267-893-2800.  We will give a pass to your student to meet you in the office. Please bring a note when you come in to sign out your student. Please do NOT email the teacher or Main Office to request a pass for early release.



    If your child is arriving late or returning from an appointment, please send them in to school with an excuse note.  If the child has a note, a parent does not need to escort the child in. You only need to escort them in if they do not have a written excuse note.  You will need to write on when you sign your child in.  Thank you for you help.
