Did you know that there is no such thing as an excused absence except for college visits, your driver’s test, take your child to work day and certain religious observances approved by the State of NJ? Rutherford BOE Policy states that student absences must not exceed 18 days. These 18 days include being sick, doctor appointments, etc. More importantly absences represent lost time in the classroom and a lost opportunity to learn.
