Students who have special problems, cannot locate a class or teacher, get mixed up on their schedules - must report immediately to any Administrator or the Student Services Office. Failure to report will result in the class absence being classified as unexcused. This includes if you don’t know where your assigned Lunch & Learn session or Advisory period is located.
When a student misses a semester examination or final examination, it is the responsibility of the parent(s) or guardian to inform the appropriate administrator and the attendance office about the absence prior to the scheduled exam. The administrator will review the circumstances of the absence and determine if a make-up exam is to be arranged. If the absence is permitted, the student must complete a “Change of Exam” form available on the website.
Students may NOT come onto campus to drop something off or to attend one class and leave. If you are on campus - you should be in class and in school for the day. If you are found on campus and attending only one class or are just here to drop something off, it will be recorded as a cut for all classes, and will result in zeros for the day in all classes as well. - THIS INFRACTION WILL RESULT IN DISCIPLINARY CONSEQUENCES AND LOSS OF CAMPUS PRIVILEGE.
If you are late to school and do not sign in with the Attendance Office, you will receive disciplinary action!! In addition you will receive zeros for the day until you do sign in to school. Thus, any absences from class(es) will be counted as cuts.
1st offense - 1 Extended Day Detention and loss of campus privilege for 9 weeks.
2nd offense - 2 Extended Day Detentions and loss of campus privilege for 18 weeks.
Continued violation of this rule will result in additional discipline.

The only exception to this policy is certain absences receiving prior approval from the appropriate Administrator.
Students suspended from school are prohibited from participating or attending extra-curricular activities of any kind. Failure to follow this procedure will result in additional discipline.
