Can a first grader join school 8 days late


gopawar August 17, 2012

My daughter's first grade starts sep 5, 2012. But unfortunately she'll be joining late by 8 days. Will that be ok with the school authorities or is that taken seriously.

Hi gopawar,

Contact the school and make sure she's registered before you move to the district. Make sure they know the circumstances. Public schools have to admit students but if the school is overcrowded you don't want to be the one who is shipped off by bus a few miles away.

Schools do take attendance seriously, and if you were on vacation they could get a bit upset, but sadly it happens all the time. If you are just moving to the area, let them know and they will make adjustments accordingly.

Good luck
