Students are expected to attend school for 180 days. In the event that an absence occurs, the student must provide an explanatory note signed by the parent/guardian. Notes must be submitted before school or during lunch to an attendance clerk in the attendance office. Students ONLY have two days (48 hours) to get the notes excused. Students are required to obtain their teachers' signature which should enable them to make-up all missed assignments. Excused absences include:
-Illness of self or immediate family
-Situation beyond the control of the parent or student, as determined by the principal or principal's designee
*Students who do not submit an excused note when absent, will be given a zero for any missed assignment.
Students who accumulate 10 or more unexcused absences in an annual course, will receive an NC (NO CREDIT) in that course and shall have to re-take the course. Consequently, students who accumulate 5 or more unexcused absences in a semester course will receive a NC (NO CREDIT) in that course and shall have to re-take the course. Students are recommended to save all excused admits in the event that the students would need to appeal a grade. Students are expected to attend class on time. Students who arrive tardy to school will be issued a one hour detention once the 4th tardy is reached and every tardy there after.
