School sends home ''catch-22'' contract.

My son's school recently sent home a contract to the parents of all seniors. The contract states that, by signing, the parent agrees that if their student has any ''unexcused absences'' between now and the end of the school year their student will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony. If the parent does not sign, the student will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony. While I do not anticipate my son having any unexcused absences, I am opposed to being ''forced'' to sign a contract. Is the contract legal?
