Students are expected to come to school and class on time. Students who arrive late and have a pass get marked Excused Tardy (ET). Students who arrive without a pass will be marked Unexcused Tardy (UT). Unexcused Tardies cannot be appealed and will be considered unexcused absences as follows:
- Four (4) Unexcused Tardies to a class will be recorded as one (1) Unexcused Absence.
- Any Unexcused Tardy of more than 10 minutes (including arriving at school 10 minutes after the bell) will be counted as one (1) Unexcused Absence, even if the student is present for the remainder of the class period.
- Students arriving to school on a late bus, or due to any other situation communicated by administration by announcement/email, will be marked Excused Tardy
Loss of Credit:
To achieve a passing grade and credit in a course, students must be in attendance. Should a student be absent from a course in excess of five (5) unexcused absences per .5 credit course or ten (10) unexcused absences per 1 credit course, the student will lose credit for that course if an appeal is not granted. Absences will be coded as AE for “absence excused” or AU “absence unexcused”.
If a student violates the Attendance Policy, his/her transcript will reflect the appropriate loss of credit. Students are expected to attend class when credit is lost; regular attendance following loss of credit strengthens a student’s appeal. Students losing credit can still earn a passing grade in the course. The grade will be factored into the student’s grade point average and may be used as a prerequisite for future courses.
Students: Please fill in the following form when documenting your absence. You will need to use your school-issued Google Account. At the end, please upload written documentation as per the policy (for example: a doctor's note, court summons/appointment, official college visit invitation/email, or parent/guardian note). NOTE: YOU CAN ONLY UPLOAD ONE NOTE/ABSENCE AT A TIME. You can take a picture of your documentation (with your smartphone) and upload the picture. Please make sure the picture is CLEAR and all parts of your documentation are clearly visible, or it cannot be considered as an excuse or exemption. If there are any questions please contact your student's guidance counselor.
