Attendance Rules for Participation in a School Sport/Activity:
Students 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. For activities or events that are schedule on non-school days or weekends, students are required to attend every class on the last school day prior to the activity. When a student is absent from class the student cannot participate in any same day practice or games.
Students will be allowed to participate if their absence was called in 24 hours in advance and a permission sticker has been attached to their excused admit-pass which will then need to be shown to their coach. Students who are more then 10 minutes late to any class will be considered absent, not tardy, and may not participate in any same day practice or game.
Parents and Students - Attendance
ANYTIME you are arriving late to school and your parent/guardian has called in to excuse you, you MUST stop into the front office and pick up your Excused Admit Pass. If you have a note from a parent/guardian excusing you, trade it for an excused admit in the front office. You will not be excused without checking into the office first and picking up this pass.
If you are leaving the building on a TownPass, you must sign out in the front office in order to get excused. If you return to school, you must remember to check in at the front office before going to class.
If a student is marked AU for classes within the day, and you 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.
