Attendance Notice

  • Stop Sign Parents, please acquaint yourself with the districts's attendance policy.  Policy Code 4400 D.- If a student is absent from school for five or more days in a semester, the principal or a committee established by the principal shall consider whether the student’s grades should be reduced because of the absences.  The principal or committee shall review other measures of academic achievement, the circumstances of the absences, the number of absences, and the extent to which the student completed missed work.

    Class attendance and participation are critical elements of the educational process and may be taken into account in assessing academic achievement.  Students are expected to be at school on time and to be present at the scheduled starting time for each class.  Students who are excessively tardy to school or class may be suspended for up to two days for such offenses.
