Attendance FAQ

How many cuts does it take to get a “U” in citizenship?
It depends on the teacher. Most teachers give a “U” if you have 2 cuts in one quarter.

Can teachers count attendance and tardies in my academic grade?
Yes, as long as they have shared their policy with you in writing.

Does attendance affect my eligibility even if I don’t get a “U” in citizenship from my teacher?
Yes. Students will become ineligible for all extra-curricular participation at the quarter if 4 unexcused absences in any one class or 8 unexcused absences in all classes combined in a quarter. Whenever a student accumulates 4 excused absences in any one class at the quarter or 20 excused absences in all classes, the Principal may review that student’s attendance, extra-curricular and academic record and will make a determination whether it is in the student’s or the school’s best interest  for the student to be allowed to continue in extra-curricular activities.

Are there any other consequences for Unexcused absences?
Each unexcused absence may result in being assigned 2 detentions, which must be served within one week of the absence.
