Notes from the Principal

Welcome to a new school year! We have had a week and a half of classes and all is going great! We are excited to have your student at Itasca High School. Please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or myself if you have any questions or concerns. We are here to help.

We have passed out many Chromebooks to the students. If you have chosen to purchase insurance, we will accept payment in the front office.

Every student must attend 93% of the days class is in session to receive course credit. Once a student misses more than 93% they must complete attendance makeup to receive credit. Attendance make up is $5 per hour and completed during Night School (Tuesday/Thursday)(3:35-7:30pm) or Saturday school (8-3:30pm).

**Remember** A student will be required to make up hours even with a doctor's note if they do not attend school on the day of the note. For an absence to count as a medical excuse and not count in the 93% rule, your student MUST attend school during the day either before or after their appointment. If they do not attend school it will count against their 93% rule and be subject to attendance makeup, even with a doctors excuse.

Please do not hesitate to call the high school office (254-687-2922 ext 115) with any questions regarding attendance.
