    Activities and Attendance:

    A student must be in attendance the entire school day (ALL class periods for which they are scheduled) in order to practice or participate in any extracurricular or co-curricular activity.
    When a student is absent from a class (marked AU) the student cannot participate in any same day practice or game.
    Students who are ten or more minutes late to any class will be considered absent, not tardy and can NOT participate.
    For activities or events that are scheduled on non-school days or weekends, students are required to attend every class on the last school day prior to the activity.
    When students are tardy to class, coaches have discretion to implement consequences related to activity participation.
    Excused absences MUST BE CALLED IN THE DAY BEFORE in order to participate.


    How do I excuse an absence?

    ANYTIME a student will be arriving late to school a parent/guardian has to call in to excuse the student and then the student MUST stop into the front office and pick up an Excused Admit Pass (BEFORE going to class).
    If the student has a note from a parent/guardian excusing them, trade it for an excused admit in the front office before going to class.
    Students will not be excused without checking into the office first and picking up this pass. If a student is leaving the building a TownPass must be called in by a parent or have a note with specified time of needing to leave the building (students must sign out in the front office in order to get excused.
    If the student returns to school, they must remember to check in at the front office before going to class or the missed class will remain unexcused.
    Parents can not call in after the fact to excuse their students.
    We must hear from a parent / guardian BEFORE the student leaves the building.
    If a student is marked AU for classes within the day, and the student did not have a pre-arranged townpass to leave the building, parents can not excuse that AU.
    Parents can not excuse a student for not attending a scheduled class to go to another class. Students must communicate with their teachers and get teacher permission.
    AU = Absence Unexcused: Teachers will mark this when students who are either more than 10 minutes late to class or do not show to their class.
    TU = Student is tardy to class (under 10 minutes).
    Teachers are unable to mark a student Absent Excused.
    If a student is planning to be absent the whole school day, a parent will need to call the front office to excuse the absence within 2 school days of that absence.
