Attendance Policy

 

  • Students are expected to maintain 96% attendance, or better. Students are therefore expected to not miss more than 6 times in any school year. Prizes are awarded for positive individual and school-wide attendance.

 

  • The Attendance Office opens at 7:15 a.m. daily to readmit students who are returning from an absence. Students must plan to clear their absence before the first bell.

 

  • Students must bring a note signed by the parent stating the reason, date of the absence, and the parent’s signature and phone number.  

 

  • We encourage students to pick up the district “absent notes” available in the Attendance Office for use by the parent.

 

  • Attendance is taken daily in each period. Students with excessive unclear absences may be considered truant and the parents can be fined by the courts.

 

  • To leave the school early for a doctor or dental appointment, bring a note to the Attendance Office before Advisory on the day of your appointment indicating the time you should be excused from school and a telephone number to reach parent.
