The Successful Student
Always wear your ID on a lanyard around your
neck
First time without it = warning
J
JANE Q. DOE
Second & Third time without it = 1
hour detention
Fourth time without it = 1 hour
detention and referral to housemaster
Every time thereafter = 1 day inhouse suspension
Be on Time to School and Class
2 times tardy = written warning & automated
call home
3 – 7 times tardy = 1 lunch detention
8 – 12 times = 1 hour detention & 1
lunch detention
13 – 21 times tardy = Saturday
suspension
(2 hour session)
21 times tardy = 3 days out-of-school
suspension and House Contract
Attendance is Important
TRY TO ATTEND EVERY DAY
• For a 6 day class, 3 absences allowed. 4th absence = failure
• For a 3 day class, 2 absences allowed. 3rd absence = failure
• 10 absences = a referral to the attendance officer
Waivers may be granted for:
- D eath in the Family
- Religious Holidays
- School sponsored activities
- Court appearances
- Unavoidable accidents
- Military obligations & Medical Reasons
What to do for an Unwaived Absence:
Get a Buy Back.
Attend five consecutive days with no absences or tardies to
school or class to buy back 1 day. You can do this two times.
Get the buy back form form from the Asst. Housemaster’s Office
Continue to Work Hard.
You can still pass for the semester or year, even with an automatic failure!
If you are passing the course, but fail due to absences, your numerical grade
will be a 59.
Example:
Semester Course - Term 1 – 59 Term 2 - 85
Final grade = 72
Year Course- Term 1-85 Term 2 - 59 Term 3-95 Term 4 – 80
Year Grade = 80
If you stop working, your average will be so low, you will not be able to bring
your grade up. So even if you fail due to absences, you must keep working to
get that 59.
DO YOUR BEST ACADEMICALLY
• Use agenda/planner to write down all assignments
• Complete at least 30 minutes of homework per day
per subject four times a week.
• It is your responsibility to make up work
IF YOU NEED HELP:
- Discuss it with your teacher
- Go after school for extra help
- Go to the Access Center for tutoring
Progress Reports are sent home 4 times a year
Report Cards are distributed four times a year
