As long as there is a good excuse for the absence from school then you're allowed as many good excused absences from school as needed.

But if you have more than 7 or 10 unexcused absences from school within the school year or in a 6 month period depending on the States laws then the child or teen is Truant and the school will notify the parents and will usually take it to the courts and then the parents and child or teen will face legal action.

If the parents continue to let the child or teen skip school or the teen or child continues to skip school both the child or teen and even the parents can be arrested.

The parents could have to spend 30 to 90 days in jail for the child's truancy depending on the states laws.

Hi. Of course, there must be a good reason for the many absences, and, for example, when I was sick a lot this year and couldn't attend College, I still had to study online. By the way, I found a great solution for dealing with academic debt in College and now very often turn to a paper writer when I have doubts about the correctness of my actions.
