• Attendance Information

    Regular attendance plays a key role in the success of each student. Every teacher’s course syllabus outlines the consequences of excessive tardiness or truancies. Except for those students with off-campus privileges, all students must check out through the attendance office before leaving campus during school hours.

    ATTENDANCE POLICIES

    Regular attendance plays a key role in the success of each student. Every teacher’s course syllabus outlines the consequences of excessive tardiness or truancies. Except for those students with off- campus privileges, all students must check out through the attendance office before leaving campus during school hours.

     ABSENCES

    If a medical or dental appointment requires the student to be out of school for part of a day, the school must be notified in advance. Before leaving campus, the student must obtain a pass  to leave campus from the attendance office.

    •  Excused absences include: Illness, medical, dental, or optometrist appointments, family funerals, formal religious observances, mandatory court appearances, school instigated suspensions, authorized field trips, or any other absences approved by the administration.
    • Unexcused absences include: Verified parental need, family vacations, oversleeping, personal reasons, truancy, and non- parental clearance within 24 hours of absence from school. Other excused absences may be approved in advance at the discretion of the principal.

     

    NOTE: Tests and homework can be made up for all excused absences. Make-ups for unexcused absences are at the individual teacher’s discretion.

     TARDIES

    Tardy counts begin with the start of each semester. CHS has developed the following policy for dealing with period-by-period tardiness:

    1. On the first tardy for an individual class:
      1. Teacher confers with the student
    2. On the second tardy for an individual class:
      1. Teacher confers with the student
      2. Teacher may contact the parent via phone or email.
    3. On the third tardy for an individual class:
      1. Student receives a written warning from administration
      2. Letter mailed home to parent with number of tardies
    4. On the fourth tardy for an individual class
      1. Student is referred to the assistant principal.
      2. After school detention will be assigned
      3. Letter mailed home to parents with number of tardies

    Continuing tardiness will result in further progressive disciplinary action which may include, but is not limited to:

    • further detention will be assigned
    • meeting with assistant principal, parent and student
    • suspended off campus pass
    • restricted attendance to after school campus sports and/or activities
    • referral to district attorney
