Attendance Policy 7 hours before LCA!


Students may not miss more than 7 hours per class, per each 7-week block before losing credit due to absences (LCA). Keep in mind classes are almost 2 hours long so 7 hours will add up quickly!

Medical appointments with a doctor's note will not count against your 7 hours.

Please try to schedule appointments outside of the school day!
