New JH/HS Attendance Policy!

New Attendance Policy for JH/HS 16-17 School Year! 

Please see summary of changes.

-Each semester, students will be allowed seven period days of excused absences per semester (i.e. student may only miss each period a total of seven times per semester).

-All medical appointments and short-term doctor /physician excuses will now count towards this seven period day allotment.

-Absences beyond the seven period days per semester limit will require a doctor/physician’s excuse, per each event, verifying the need for the student’s absence, or the absence will be classified as “Unexcused.”

-A doctor’s note will be requested for serious illnesses lasting longer than three or more days to ensure the safety and welfare of all students. (This means a student who misses four or more consecutive days of school will need a note from a doctor to be allowed back in school.)

-If a student has five unexcused period absences in a semester in the same class, they will be withdrawn for the class and issued a failing grade for the semester’s course and will not receive credit for the semester in the course.

-Please know that advanced clearance absences (i.e. trip, family event etc.) can be approved. However, advanced clearance absences will not be excused when the requested days are over the student’s seven period days limit per semester. (This is the reason as to why it is imperative that you contact the office to request advance clearance permission before you determine your son or daughter will miss school for non-health related reasons.)

-The entire new attendance policy can be found in our handbook on p. 37.

Thanks, Dr. Gordon
