45 Exemption of student from attendance for period of no more than 5 days


Despite section 36, if satisfied that a student’s absence is justified, the principal of the school may exempt the student from attending the school for a period of no more than 5 school days.


In the absence of evidence to the contrary, a certificate from the principal stating that a student was absent from school for any period and that the principal is not satisfied that the absence was justified is sufficient proof that the student was absent for that period without being exempted under subsection (1).


For the purposes of this section, judicial notice must be taken of the appointment and signature of the principal.
