Greenville County Schools follow SC state law regarding school attendance. Parents have a legal responsibility to send their children to school. Students are counted present only when they are in school, on homebound instruction, or at an activity authorized by the school principal.


A written excuse for a student's absence must be turned in within two (2) days of the student's return to school. An excuse should include the reason for and the date of the absence. If a student has no excuse, the absence(s) will be coded as unverified or unexcused. Only ten parent notes per year will be counted. A student must attend school for 180 minutes to be counted as present for that day.
