Attendance & Enrollment

Welcome to Littlestown Area School District.  If you are a new or prospective student's family, click on the New Students link on the left to find all the information you need to become a student at one of our schools.

Regular attendance in school is an important part of student learning.  If your child is absent for any reason, please ensure that an excuse form is returned to your child's school immediately following an absence.

The Board considers the following conditions to constitute reasonable cause for absence from school:

1. Illness of the student.
2. Quarantine.
3. Death in the immediate family.
4. Religious holidays.
5. Planned family vacations with prior approval.
6. Emergency farm employment.
7. Other urgent reasons, to be considered only as they directly affect the student and as agreed to by the principal.

Upon return to school following an absence, whether excused or unexcused, a student shall bring a written excuse within three (3) days following his/her return, signed by a parent/guardian and indicating the reason for the absence. A principal or designee may require the student to bring a note from a doctor for any absence. Failure to comply with this requirement shall result in the absence being declared as unexcused.

Please see School Board Policy #204 for more information regarding student attendance.
