  • One grade increment reduction for your first two unexcused absences, and then an additional grade increment loss for each additional unexcused absence 
(i.e.  “A” to “A-”  or “C+” to “C”) 
 
  • An unexcused absence will also equal one night of detention

TARDY POLICY
 
It is also very important that you are on time for class and unexcused tardies will affect your grade, as well.  Please look at the information below as it spells out what affects unexcused tardies will have on your grade. 
 
 
  • If a student accumulates four (4) unexcused tardies in a given class,  a grade reduction will occur, as well for that class (i.e.  “A” to “A-”  or “C+” to “C”)
  • Three (3) unexcused tardies will also count as one unexcused absence resulting in one hour of detention.  Every additional unexcused tardy is another hour of detention    
 
Please note that an unexcused tardy is defined as:
 
  • Not being in the room when the bell rings
  • Not having a valid excuse for being late (Teacher discretion)
