Attendance Policy 

Attendance Policy for Course Credit: Any student who accumulates more than 10 unexcused absences in a semester, must attain a minimum of 70% in the course to receive credit (instead of 60%).

Attendance: Absences may be excused only for illness, or for a verifiable family emergency. These absences can be excused only if a written note from the legal guardian is received in the main office within 48 hours of the scholar’s return to school. A doctor’s note or other official documentation is required for an absence period of more than 2 consecutive days. Notes from the doctor must come from the doctor on their letterhead. If a scholar is to be out, the parent/guardian should inform the main office before 8:00 a.m. if possible.

Scholars who are absent for all or part of any day may not attend or participate in any extracurricular event or sporting event on that day or night except with written permission of the Principal. For make-up work due to absences, scholars are given as many days to turn in work as they were absent. For example, if a scholar were absent for two days, he/she would have to turn in make-up work by the second day after he/she returns.

It is required that parents/guardians:

  1. Get their child to school every day on time:
  2. Expect their child to be in school/class on time.  No late arrivals.
  3. Provide the school with medical documentation of illnesses/medical appointments within 48 hours of their child’s return to school. 
  4. Contact the school in the morning if your child will be absent from school & provide the reason for absence at (313) 748-4045 (attendance line). A written note and/or official documentation is required for the absence(s) to be excused.
  5. Expect and support school consequences for unexcused/unauthorized absences.
