§ 3041.19. Absence.

 (a)  Upon notification from the provider that a child has been absent more than 5 consecutive days for which the child is scheduled to attend child care, not including days of a child’s illness, injury or impairment that precludes a child from attending child care, or other reason as specified in §  3041.21 (relating to subsidy suspension), the eligibility agency shall send the parent or caretaker an adverse action notice terminating the child’s eligibility and payment to the provider.

 (b)  The notice shall inform the parent or caretaker of the following:

   (1)  The parent or caretaker shall report to the eligibility agency the date of the child’s return to care.

   (2)  Payment will not be terminated if the child returns to care by the date set forth on the notice.

   (3)  If the child does not return to care by the date set forth on the notice and there are no grounds for subsidy suspension, the child’s subsidy will be terminated effective the date set forth on the notice.

 (c)  If a child’s absences exceed 25 total enrollment days in the State’s fiscal year, the parent or caretaker is responsible to pay to the provider the provider’s verified published daily rate for each day of absence starting with the 26th day of absence. A child is considered absent only once during an enrollment day. Suspended days of service as specified in §  3041.21 are not considered days of absence.
