Class Attendance

It is the student’s responsibility to attend all classes for which he/she is scheduled. The faculty, staff, and administration assume the responsibility for the supervision of all students during the day.

A student who fails to attend a scheduled class is considered to be in violation of school regulations. Attendance at all scheduled classes (unless legally excused) is a requirement for successful completion and credit award for that course.

All absences from class will be considered unexcused until cleared by the student. Students are not permitted to make up work missed due to an unexcused absence. A student must clear an absence from class with the teacher upon returning to class in order for the absence to be considered excused. If an absence from class is anticipated, it is the responsibility of the student to obtain prior permission from the teacher of the class affected.

The following procedure shall be used to handle class attendance violations:

  • First Offense
    • Discipline Referral to the assistant principal and administrative detention
  • Second Offense
    • The student will be referred to the office through a discipline referral form and receive a Saturday detention.
    • The student’s grade will be dropped one (1) letter grade in the course affected by the cut in the marking term in which the cut occurred.
  • Third Offense
    • The student will be referred to the office through a discipline referral form and receive a Saturday detention.
    • The student will fail the course.
