• Students taking courses for high school credit can accrue the  following number of unexcused absences before losing course credit:

    45-day classes 3 unexcused absences

    90-day classes 5 unexcused absences

    180-day classes 10 unexcused absences

    Students who exceed the approved limits for unexcused absences do not receive course credit.

    Three unexcused tardies for first block (anytime before 9:10 a.m.) will result in a lunch detention.


  • Attendance Procedures:

    Students who must be dismissed early will need to be signed out in person by an approved parent/guardian with appropriate identification. We will no longer be able to accept an email request in order to sign out a student. Early dismissals must be done no later than 3:00 p.m. 


    • No students will be permitted to leave school during the school day unless a parent/guardian or other approved person on the student’s emergency contact list comes to the school for the student or unless prior arrangements have been made.  

    • The parent/guardian or other approved person must come to the office and sign the student out during school hours (the school is open at 7:30 a.m.). Parents may sign out students in the main office up to one week in advance of the appointment. Picture identification is required. 

    • Anyone not on the student’s approved sign out list will not be allowed to sign any student out of school.  

    • Students who leave school without being properly signed out will be treated as cutting/leaving school. Students are not allowed to be signed out of school between 3:05 and 3:30 p.m. 

    • Students with an early dismissal pass must present a pass to the parking lot attendant.  

    • Ill or injured students must be signed out by an adult in order to leave campus. In case of an emergency or extenuating circumstances, the principal will use his or her judgment in excusing a student. 

    • Students will not be allowed to sign themselves out of school, regardless of age or grade, to go to appointments.
