ATTENDANCE AND CONDUCT
All students are expected to observe the regular school rules, as stated in the district handbook. Regular attendance is mandatory because each class represents a significant portion of the total class time. Vacations, training camps, or competitions are not valid reasons for absences.
In any course except Driver’s Education, if a student is absent more than two days per semester, regardless of reason, the student will be dropped from the class with no refund of tuition or fees. Additionally, three tardies accumulate to count as one absence.
For Driver’s Education, any absence may result in failure to meet State Driver Education guidelines for attendance and the course.
Final Exams will be conducted on June 22 and July 13 during the later half of the day. Final Exams will not be allowed prior to these days.
