I. Attendance/Absences

Excused absences

1. Policy

Students are only allowed five excused absences per marking period. Any excused absence after five must be made up as an unprepared. Students who do not meet this requirement will receive a drop in letter grade.

2. Nurse's Excuses

All nurse’s office visits after two will need to be made up as an unprepared. The nurse will not issue a PE excuse unless the student has obtained a pass from the physical education teacher FIRST! Failure to comply with this rule will constitute an unprepared.

3. Medical Excuse (due to illness or injury) Classes missed do not have to be made up upon presentation of a written note from a physician. The note will be kept on file by the school nurse. This note should include the date of excuse and the date of return. Students must present a medical note to return.

4. Field Trips. Guidance appointments and School activities Any missed classes due to a field trip, guidance appointment, or other school activity will be considered an excused absence and must be made up if over five classes.

Unexcused Absence

An unexcused absence will be considered a cut and students will need to make up 2 classes to earn back their 10 point loss.

II. Unprepared

An unprepared is considered not properly dressed to meet department standards for participation. After the third unprepared students will be referred to the office. The first unprepared is a loss of 5 points. Each subsequent unprepared is a loss of 10 points.
