ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

Regular school attendance improves academic achievement and helps students develop a responsible approach to work habits which carry over to adult life. When a student is absent, making up the missed work is not only a burden on the student but also on teachers who must try to keep the absent student abreast of classwork while nevertheless focusing on the "new" work for the entire class; and on responsible parents who must help and support the student with make-up work as well as the current school work. When students assume responsibility for regular and faithful attendance, this acceptance of responsibility carries over into post high school responsibilities.
