Attendance Information Students are allowed FOUR absences per nine week period. Any absences over that number, no matter the type, results in the student being denied credit in each period that the excessive absences occur. Unexcused absences CANNOT be made up Students are allowed THREE school days to change the status of an unexcused absence. Make-up days for excessive absences must be cleared by the end of the next semester.
How Do I Clear My Absences? Sign up with Mrs. Montoya (200 Building) in order to attend Saturday school. YOU MAY NOT JUST SHOW UP! BE ON TIME (8:00 A.M.- 1:00 P.M.) If you leave early, you will forfeit the whole day. You must have your ID Bring something to study or read (school related) School rules and dress code are in effect No radios, portable music devices, video games, etc. are permitted. The teacher has the right to refuse admittance to any student or to send them out because of dress code violation, lack of ID, POOR attitude, or misbehavior.
Q. Is it necessary to meet only with my designated counselor? A. Yes, it is preferred that you see your designated counselor, HOWEVER, if immediate assistance is needed, please seek the nearest counselor or administrator. Q. What if my counselor is not there? A. Leave a note or send an e-mail to let the counselor know you stopped by the office. Q. Do I need to have any community service hours or join any clubs while I am in high school? A. Community service hours and organizational memberships look GREAT on a résumé and college applications! (Note: Juniors & Seniors inducted into NHS MUST complete community service hours).
