  2. When a student arrives at school after 30 minutes of the start of the school day, the student will be considered as ½ day absent.
  3. If a student arrives at school within an hour or leaves to go to the doctor or other appointment and returns within one hour, the student will not be considered as absent.  If the student is gone for more than one hour, the student will be considered as ½ day absent.
