Policies and Procedures for Absences from School

Please note that your child's attendance is linked to school funding. Whether we like it or not, the state allocates money to individual schools based on the number of children that attend school each day (the more children that attend regularly, the more money BAM receives).

If your child is 30 minutes late, they are not included in the official school attendance for that day and BAM loses out on money.

Likewise, if your child has an excused absence, they are not included in the official school count.
