Excused vs. Unexcused
Absences will be excused for the following reasons:
1. Illness or injury of the student
2. Illness or injury in the immediate family
3. Death in the immediate family. Unexcused absences include family trips, vacations, cruises, etc.
It is the student's responsibility to obtain and complete all missing work in a timely manner. Students will receive two days for every day absent to complete missing work. After this, it may be counted as late.
Tardy to School
During the 2019/2020 school year, Neptune Middle School‘s students coming in late will be required to have the Parent/Guardian come to the Front Office to sign in the student(s).
For truancy purposes, five (5) tardies to school, or a combination of tardies to school and early departures that equals five (5), shall equal one unexcused absence. However, this unexcused absence is for referral purposes, and the electronic record is not to be altered. Actual presence or absence on campus must be accurately reflected in the electronic record. School begins at 9:20am and breakfast is served from 8:50am - 9:10am.
