Attendance is important and it is each student’s basic responsibility as a member of the school community. In addition, regular attendance is directly related to academic and career success. Every student is expected to be on time and attend all classes.

Attendance is taken by teachers each period. The attendance secretary makes daily telephone calls to parents/guardians to report unauthorized class absences, and regular attendance reports are sent to parents/guardians. Although we contact many parents by phone each day to ascertain the reason for their child’s absence, it is advisable for parent/guardian to call the school attendance office when he/she knows the child is going to be absent.

Additionally, for all absences other than truancy, the student is required to submit a note from the parent/guardian explaining absence. The note should include the date and reason for absence.
