    Parents Visitation

    Parents are welcome to observe your student’s classes.  In order to ensure that the teacher will be there on the day that you visit, parents are required to schedule class observations in advance and sign in at the Main Office. 

    When the class observation occurs please do not interrupt the class to talk to the teacher or your student during your visit. The teacher will ask you to leave if there are any interruptions during the visit.

    Please make an appointment through the Guidance Office for a conference with teachers and professional school counselors to discuss the student’s progress. 

    Tardy Policy

    Unlawful absence and/or truancy is defined as the act of a pupil being absent from school for a day or any portion of a day from an individual class or any portion of a class for any reason other than those defined as lawful.  

    By law, parents/guardians must ensure regular attendance for their school-aged children who are enrolled in the public schools. If a child has excessive unexcused absences, the parent/guardian may be convicted of a misdemeanor and imprisoned or fined by the courts. Additionally, any other adult who persuades or attempts to persuade a student to be unlawfully absent, or who harbors a child who is unlawfully absent, may also be convicted of a misdemeanor and imprisoned and/or fined.


    Possible Consequences May Result In:

    • Referral to Pupil Personnel Services for possible referral to court for violation of the compulsory attendance law or to Juvenile Services for intake services.

    • Before and/or after school detention 

    • Behavioral probation 

    • Written contract 

    • In-school suspension 

    • Saturday School Program 

    • Removal of school privileges 

    • Reduction in grades or loss of credit 

    • Restriction of extracurricular activities 

    • Referral to an alternative educational program

    • Referral to Attendance Committee
