Our students' attendance matters every day. The MS Department of Education requires that students are present for 63% of the instructional day (this excludes recess, lunch and breaks). We know that sometimes early checkouts are necessary. Checkout times vary according to each school's unique schedule. At Milam, for your student to be considered "present" for the day, please check out AFTER 1:15 pm.
1. Students are allowed a maximum of (3) parent request excused absences per semester 2. The Attendance Office must be notified within 2 days of the absence by either written note (must include student’s full name, date of absence and parent’s signature) or by filling out the online form (link below).
