Mental Health Resources
When we talk about mental health we are talking about “a person’s condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being.” Our mental health influences how we think, feel, and behave in daily life. It also affects our ability to handle stress, face and overcome challenges, maintain and build relationships, and recover from difficulties and setbacks. Find resources you may need here.
In order for the school to fulfill its responsibility for providing a thorough and efficient education, the complete cooperation of parents/guardians and students is required to maintain a high level of school attendance. The frequent absence of students from school disrupts the continuity of the instructional process and limits the ability of students to complete the prescribed curriculum requirements successfully.
The following details how the attendance policy is applied to classes of varying duration:
1.25 Credit Courses. Students are permitted 4 unexcused absences and will lose credit for the class on the 5th unexcused absence.
2.5 Credit Courses. Students are permitted 8 unexcused absences and will lose credit for the class on the 9th unexcused absence.
3.75 Credit Courses. Students are permitted 11 unexcused absences and will lose credit for the class on the 12th unexcused absence.
5 Credit Courses. Students are permitted 15 unexcused absences and will lose credit for the class on the 16th unexcused absence.
