Attendance Policy
The Lexington Middle School recognizes the following reasons for absence as reasonable excuses:

  • Illness or injury
  • Medical appointment
  • Death in family
  • Court requirements
  • Educational trip

Neither working nor vacations are considered viable excuses.

All students are required to complete the work they miss while out.

If a student will be absent from school for illness or another reason, a parent or guardian should contact the office assistant prior to 8:00am on the day of the absence. If the office hasn’t yet opened you may leave a detailed message with the student’s name, homeroom and the reason for the absent. On the day the student returns to school they must bring a written and signed excuse. If the student is out for an extended period of time they must return with a Physician’s Note. A student with more than twenty (20) days missed will result in legal action investigation of educational neglect.

The building opens at 7:00am. Students should not be in the building or on the premises before this time. If parents need to drop their students off at the school prior to 7:00am they may contact the office assistant the day before for a one-time pass.
