Attendance & Timesheet

High school attendance is ultimately the responsibility of the student and his/her family. It is important that parents and students recognize the direct relationship that exists between academic success and regular school attendance.

Site Location Students

  • Student who accumulate 10 Consecutive, Unexcused Absences are required by law to be withdrawn from school.
  • Student will attend school 5 hours a day, 5 days a week totaling 25 hours of class time.

Absences

You may receive a letter notifying you of your student’s absences. These letters are sent out once a week when the student has reached the 6th and 9th absence. Pursuant to A.R.S. §15-901(A)(1), “…excused absences shall be identified by the Department of Education...”. The Department of Education defines an excused absence as being an absence due to illness, doctor appointment, bereavement, family emergencies and out-of-school suspensions.

Tardy Policy

Consistent, timely arrival at school is critical to academic success. It also eliminates distractions to the learning environment caused by frequent interruptions in the classroom. A student shall be considered tardy if s/he is not physically present in the assigned lab or classroom at the scheduled start of the instructional block. Tardy students will make up their time during their break.
