Students have to attend EACH class (8 total classes) at least 90% of the days the class is offered per semester. (this includes excused and unexcused absences) If students lose credit for a class, absences will be reviewed by the Attendance Review Committee. This committee will decide whether or not the student may regain credit through after school Cub Academy, Intersession or Summer School.
- We can only accept 5 handwritten notes (parent/guardian notes) to excuse your child’s absences for the school year.
- All absences must be cleared through the attendance office. Notes will only be accepted within two days of the absence.
- After an absence, students will report to the front office first thing in the morning with their excuse note. After 8:20am, students may submit their notes to the front office at teachers discretion. A note is required for ALL absences.
- If picked up early, or arriving late and missing any class period, it is important that you submit a note to excuse the absence for the class periods missed.
