Miscellaneous Student accident insurance is offered through United Health Care. (Forms can be found on the each principal’s homepage.) Lockers will be checked out on the first day of the semester. Students will choose their locker partner and then they will be issued a locker number and combination.
Attendance Most important piece of school success! By School Board Policy: “Upon the 11th absence per class, per semester, the student will continue to be enrolled in the class or classes on a NO CREDIT status.” This does not count for school related absences such as athletics or activities. It does count for both excused and unexcused absences.
Attendance (cont.) Please know when your child is sick…please keep them home. If your child hits the 10 th absence, we will determine credit based off of the circumstances at hand. The idea behind the policy is for students not to skip class. The idea is not to send kids to school sick.
Attendance (cont.) Parents will be notified daily upon students missing class via phone as well as in writing on the 3 rd, 6 th, 9 th, 10 th, and 11 th absences in any one course. 3 tardies will equal one unexcused absence. If you are late more than 5 minutes the tardy will be marked as an unexcused absence.
