Attendance Procedures

Absences and Tardies

Procedures for reporting absences:
Student’s absences must be cleared within 48 hours of the students return to school. Absences not cleared with in this time frame will be considered unexcused/cut, and the student will be assigned Saturday School . You may clear your student’s absence by phone at 556-1900 ext 5012 or ext 5006, by writing a note, or by email.

Tardy Policy (E.C. 48260) It is the responsibility of all students to be in class, in their seat, and ready to work when the tardy bell rings. This includes having the required materials as well. Students who are habitually tardy disrupt class and detract from the learning process of other students. The purpose of the school’s tardy policy is to discourage students from being late to class.

A tardy occurs any time a student is not in class, in their seat, and ready to work when the bell rings. An excessive tardy is considered a cut and occurs any time a student is 30 or more minutes late. Students who are excessively tardy are considered truant.


Students who are tardy to class will incur the consequences outlined below. Note that the following refers to tardies in a particular class for a semester.

Tardy 1 - 3 = Warning (from teacher and HERO notification) Tardy 4 = Parent contact by teacher and notification from HERO Tardy 5 = Meeting with LD to discuss tardies and future consequences (LD contacts parent). Tardy 5 - 9 = Warning (from teacher and HERO notification) Tardy 10 (and every 5 tardies thereafter) = Meeting with AA or AP, Parent, and Student.  Student is assigned Saturday School (4 hours)  ** Should a student fail to serve their assigned consequence, student privileges, including extracurricular activities, may be revoked.

** Excessive Tardies and failure to serve assigned consequences may result in in-school or home suspension


 

Excessive tardies may also affect a student’s citizenship grade.
