Students are expected to be at school every day. Being in class everyday is important and necessary for students to achieve their best school work and to fulfill required time in class to earn credits. Absences can jeopardize good grades, passing grades, and/or issue of credits. Attendance habits carry directly over to habits outside of school. Be responsible; employers will demand good attendance and punctuality!
If a student must be absent, a parent needs to call the attendance secretary prior to 9:30 a.m. on the day of the absence. Medical excuses must be original, and must be presented to school within one week returning to school.
Students arriving late or returning from an appointment must sign-in at the attendance office.
Sign-ins come under the same jurisdiction as attendance reasons: Illness, Medical, or Special Emergency only.
Students and parents should make every effort to make medical appointments outside of school hours; however, should an unavoidable situation arise making it necessary for a student to leave school, a medical statement and parent contact with the office are required prior sign-out. Sign-out notes should be brought to the office prior to the start of school at 8:12. Sign-outs require direct parent communication or parent pick-up. Notes of students driving or leaving with someone other than a parent must be verified by a phone call from a parent prior to the student leaving school.
Unauthorized leaving is truancy. Sign-outs come under the same jurisdiction as attendance reasons: Illness, Medical, or Special Emergency only.
