Attendance Information

Regular, punctual school attendance is an important factor in your child's academic success. 

Pennsylvania state law indicates that all students must attend school each day and can only be excused from school for bona fide or urgent reasons as indicated by law. Any absence that is not an excused absence is considered an unlawful absence for students under compulsory attendance. Vacation is not considered an urgent reason for absence from school.

Per RTSD Board Policy No. 204, Attendance, written verification of the reason for absence must be submitted within three days of your child's return to school; otherwise, the absence will be recorded as unexcused. Once the academic school year ends, no changes can be made to your child's attendance record.
