     It is essential that you arrive on time. Students are given 6 minutes after the second bell to change and meet at the instructional area.  This means you must be in your correct attendance spot or you will be counted tardy and/or absent.  If repeated tardies occur, consequences will be administered.  If you are absent, you will not receive your daily activity points until make-up policies have been met.


It is the student’s responsibility to obtain make-up materials for excused absences.

A written assignment or Outside Activity Form can be acquired from your instructor.  You will not receive your daily points until make-up policies have been met.  You will have two weeks from the date of the absence or excuse to make-up the points.


If you are unable to participate, a parent or a doctor must excuse you.

To be excused from class, you must do one of the following:

A. Supply your teacher with a signed parent note that specifically states the excused activity (i.e. No running, but can walk).  A parent note will suffice for a maximum of three days; then as stated in Board Policy a doctor’s note is required for longer durations. These situations may require the assignment of alternative learning activities.

B. Supply your teacher with a doctor's excuse that specifically states the condition, what you are ABLE to do, and when the child is able to return to class, or when he/she will be re-evaluated by the physician, (a start and end date).

C. To e-mail your instructor with an excuse or concern use the following address:

It is the student’s responsibility to make up any missed assignments or activity points.  Numerous absences will impact their grade if make-ups are not completed.    Student/Athletes who miss class due to an Athletic event will receive their activity points for that day.
