Para ver esta página en español haga CLIC AQUí

Every student is expected to attend school daily and be on time for class.  If a student is absent from class without a valid excuse or leaves class without the teacher's permission, s/he is considered truant.  Truancy also includes students who are more than 30 minutes late to school without a verified reason, or "ditching" part or the whole of a period.  This also applies to unverified/unexcused absences.

Parent is notified of the truancy by an Assistant Principal.  A student may receive a failing grade for unexcused absences exceeding 10 days per semester.  Habitual truancy will result in a suspension from school and a referral to the School Attendance Review Board (SARB).  The SARB process is controlled by the juvenile court system and may result in a court appearance, fine and/or a weekend in a juvenile detention facility.
