The attendance policy of Northridge Middle Schools states you must send a note to the school within TWO DAYS of the absence to have the absence excused. Students may not miss school, or any particular class or classes, more than twelve (12) excused days during any school year. The note must have the student's name, the date(s) of absence, and the legal guardian's signature. Otherwise it is an unexcused absence with grades of "0". Excessive absences and/or tardies may result in disciplinary action. Missing the bus is an UNEXCUSED TARDY.
