Attendance Policy

We believe that regular attendance and punctuality are required for academic success, and that both
are also desirable work habits.

Absences

Providing a note to the office or a call to the attendance line are required  by a parent/guardian, or by you if you are 18, informing of  the dates that an absence will occur. Failure to provide either a note or call will result in the absence being considered a skip.

Skips

Unacceptable absences are called skips and all students who skip, regardless of age have chosen to receive the following consequences for each class skipped in any subject:

Skip # Action that will be taken
1. 1 lunch hour detention, phone call home
2. 2 lunch hour detentions, phone call home
3. 3 lunch hour detentions, a letter home re: concerns and suspension warning, interview with Vice Principal
4. Further skips result in suspensions

Lates

All students, regardless of age, who arrive for a class after the bell, have chosen to receive the
following consequence for each late:

Late # Action that will be taken
1. Warning by subject teacher
2. 1 detention, phone call home, interview with the Vice Principal
3. 2 detentions, phone call home, interview with the Vice Principal
4. Further lates result in suspensions
