Attendance Expectation and Tardy Policy
"Students automatically fail a course if they miss more than eight days from a class. Students fail regardless of their reason for absence, but at the end of each semester, there is an appeals process. The student may appeal to the principal to waive this rule in the case of extreme hardship. Unexcused absences are not approved or waived."
As your counselor, I am here to assist you in making your high school career successful! If attendance is an issue, we can work together to develop strategies and set a positive plan in motion to improve your attendance.
