Morning tutorials- Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:45 in the MAC. Come get help from some of our great junior and senior members of the National Honor Society.

Attendance Matters

The vast majority of our students with excessive absences fail to pass their classes. Students need to be at school everyday.

Our schoolwide attendance goal for this year is 97%. Our state funding is based on the percentage of students at school at 10:15 am every day. Higher attendance rate = more money for resources for your student.

For students who exceed our 96% goal, we are planning some more exciting rewards this year, such as a movie in the PAC, Kona Ice, and exam exemptions!

For students who miss school, here is some very important attendance information:

  • 3 or more unexcused absences in a 4 week period - warning letter sent home, phone conference with at-risk coordinator and attendance improvement plan.
  • 5 or more unexcused absences in a 6-week period - warning letter sent home, phone conference with administrator, attendance behavior plan reviewed.
  • 7 or more unexcused absences in an 8-week period - warning letter sent home and Behavior Intervention Plan meeting called with the parents, student, and assistant principal.
  • 10 or more unexcused absences in a 6 month period - truancy charges are filed. Parent, student and school administrator will be summoned to appear in truancy court.

Our campus goal is to reach 97% attendance each day.

Thanks for your support!
