The following are classified as lawful excused dismissals:
- Medical appointments, with a doctor’s statement required to change from unexcused.
- Illness of a student, as verified by the school nurse or administrator, and contact established with a parent.
- Illness in the immediate family that is verified by a parent or doctor.
