I have heard about this but I don't know why the state pays only when children attend school? I can understand if they were just staying home for no good reason. But with a doctor's letter why do they still have a limit on absent days?

While that is true, it likely isn't relevant in this situation. Usually, once you choose to enroll your child in kindergarten, you are expected to follow all the rules.

However, unless the child is having difficulty at school because of the absences, you won't have a problem. Schools really don't want truly sick children at school and want to discourage parents from keeping they're kids home when they aren't truly sick.

same with my state, it's not required but they can hold a child back because of it as the PP said, if there something that they feel the child is missing due to the large number of misses they may do it- again, up to the state and in some cases the district
