TARDY TO SCHOOL:
Families are strongly encouraged to schedule vacations during the regular school breaks. Students cannot receive an excused absence due to family vacations.
Any unauthorized absence from class is a cut. Cutting one class in a day will result in the student being marked with ½ day attendance. Cutting four or more classes will result in the student being marked absent for the entire day. These are the rules of the Chicago Board of Education and the Illinois State Board of Education.
Students who attend regularly and demonstrate great attendance are likely to earn better grades. Students will be required to make up Instructional Class time resulting in class cuts serving an hour detention after school. Failure to serve will result in further disciplinary actions.
POOR ATTENDANCE OR POOR ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE:
Students with poor attendance, chronic absences, excessive cuts or tardiness will be required to have a parent conference and sign a “Performance Contract”. Attendance verification will be required until the student corrects the problem. Failure to comply with the contract requirements will result in additional parent conferences.
Excellent Attendance = Excellent Grades.
