Absences and Readmittance

Students have the responsibility to be punctual and attend classes on all regularly scheduled school days.  Absences or tardies must be verified by the parent or guardian by calling the 24-hour attendance line at 395-5361 by 10:00 a.m. the day of the absence. Students arriving after 9:00 a.m. are to report to the attendance office with a note from their parent or guardian before going to class.

Before returning to school, students must have had parent call the 24-hour attendance reporting line at 395-5369, to clear your absence. A note must include the absence date(s), reason for the absence, and a parent/guardian signature. Upon returning to school following an absence, students are to follow these steps:

    Step 1: Report to the attendance office to obtain a re-admit.  This should be completed before school starts.

    Step 2: Have the re-admit signed by all teachers; leave it with the sixth period teacher.

A re-admit will show “truancy pending,” if you fail to bring a note explaining your absence.  If a note is not provided with three days, truancy on the student’s record will result.
