Attendance Policy & Procedures

Attendance Policy & Procedures | Out of Town | Make-Up Work | Homework Hotline | Punching | Tardy to School | Leaving


To be updated...



Students are expected to make up all school work missed because of an absence. It is the student’s responsibility to ask the teacher what work was missed. Do not expect the teacher to seek you out to tell you. Students who are suspended or truant will be given the opportunity to make up all work missed due to the absence for full credit.


If you are absent from school, you can check assignments with StandardsScore WebNotes. Instructions for access will be found here.



If students need to leave school during the day, they must follow these procedures.

  1. Bring a note signed by your parent/guardian to the attendance window stating the reason and time to leave.
  2. Get a pass from the attendance window before school up until 8:00 a.m. After 8:00 a.m. go to the Student Services Office.
  3. Check in at the Student Services Office upon returning to school.

If these procedures are not followed, the time missed from school may be considered an unexcused absence.


Students arriving late to school (after 7:45 am) must always check in with the student services attendance secretary before reporting to lockers and classes. Oversleeping, missing the bus, and missing a ride do not excuse tardiness. Students tardy to school will receive consequences according to the following plan:

1st tardy - warning by 1st hourteacher
2nd tardy - 10 min. after school with teacher
3rd tardy - 20 min. after school with teacher
4th tardy - 30 min. after school with teacher and teacher contacts family of student
5th and future tardies - referral to office, 40 min. detention

Each quarter students will begin with a clean slate of accumulated tardies.

Students arriving to school after 8:00 am will be marked unexcused and will be required to serve an office detention. This absence will be considered for a truancy referral if a student accumulates 5 or more unexcused absences in a semester. Student will be given one warning and will then earn detention each time they arrive after 8:00 am. If a student misses more than one class period more than one detention will be assigned.
