    The Hamburg Area School District recognizes that attendance is an important factor in educational success. Our district attendance policy has recently been updated in compliance with state and federal mandates and to address adjustments surrounding COVID-19. Details regarding attendance policies and procedures can be found in the High School Student Handbook.
