UPDATED Attendance Policy

There have been a few updates to the Attendance Policy since the start of the school year. Things to note:


  • Students who are not present at least 50% of the day will be marked absent. Students must be here before 11:30 (if they are late) or may not leave before 11:30 (if they are leaving early) to be counted PRESENT for the school day.
  • An update for COVID quarantine students: Students who are on quarantine and are completing the work from home will be parked QP, which stands for Quarantine Present, and this counts as a present school day instead of an Excused Absence. These policies comply with scholarship rules as well.
