CLEARING FULL DAY ABSENCES Have parents call attendance office the day of the absence. If NOT cleared within three days, absence turns into truancy (full-day cutting)… hour missed=hour owed Notes will be accepted but the office prefers a phone call. If you are ever out of class without an excuse, you’ll have to make the hour up in detention or SWAP.
FIRST PERIOD ABSENCES We can’t accept transportation, baby-sitting, or “I didn’t wake up on time” as an excused absence. The consequence for a first period unexcused absence will result in a detention, or one hour for each period missed. Be CAREFUL, when you accumulate unexcused absences, you may be suspended and referred to district office.
ARRIVING LATE AND LEAVING EARLY Sign in at the attendance office when arriving late or leaving early. Failure to follow these directions may result in a detention. Leaving campus without permission will be SWAPS, detentions, susp. or a combination.
TARDIES No excused tardies Three free tardies to class per semester Free tardies are emergency tardies On the 4th tardy, consequences begin On the 9th, and subsequent tardies, you will be suspended.
TARDY SWEEPS Unannounced You must have both a PASS and TEACHER’S PERMISSION when walking outside of class after the bell rings. If you are caught outside your class without a pass, even though your teacher has given you permission, you will get a detention. PE classes must be inside the locker room to be safe from the tardy sweep. If No 5th period, clear campus by 2nd bell or caught in tardy sweep. “But I don’t have a class” is not going to get you off.
