Attendance Waivers

Attendance waivers are available in the office. Students are permitted 9 unexcused absences per semester. Students will not receive academic credit for any class in which they exceed this minimum attendance requirement. If you think you have exceeded the attendance limit and are in danger of losing credit, please stop by the office today for an attendance waiver.

Waivers must be completed and returned to the office by Tuesday, June 20. Waivers must be signed by a parent/guardian. No incomplete or late waivers will be accepted. Failure to submit a waiver AND provide adequate documentation for your unexcused absences will result in a loss of credit.

Please be sure the office has received documentation for all tardy make-ups.
