We're looking for new STARs!
Attendance has a direct correlation to student success! If you miss a high school class for an excusable reason, parents/guardians must email Mrs. Andrews to clear the absence: email@example.com and follow up with your teachers for assignments. Students should follow up directly with college instructors in the case of an absence. Although we are not on campus, we are still responsible for record keeping. Please make attending both your high school and college classes a priority!
