ABSENCE POLICY

A parent must notify the office within 2 days of the student's absence (either through a phone call or written note).  If your student misses school, please call the office or send him/her with a written excuse the next day.  The student must take the note to attendance before returning to class.  Students will be penalized with a truant absence and will be assigned Saturday School if their parent fails to call the office or provide a written note within 2 days of the absence.

Students are tardy if they are not in the classroom when the bell rings.  Tardies are cumulative by semester.  The tardy policy is listed below.

  • First Tardy: Teacher counsels student.
  • Second and Third Tardy: The teacher assigns student detention and contacts the parent or guardian. Failure to serve detention after the appropriate options may result in a referral.
  • Fourth Tardy: The student will be referred to the counselor. The counselor may assign a detention and contact the parent or guardian.
  • Fifth and Sixth Tardy: The assistant principal may assign a Saturday School and contact the parent or guardian.
  • Beyond Sixth: A Parent/Student/Assistant Principal conference with possible referral to the Truancy Reduction Center, initiation of SARB process and an Attendance Contract.
