Attendance Policy

Coming to class regularly is the single most important factor in being a successful student in Science 9. We perform activities each day that increase your understanding of the topics studied. Labs, discussions, etc., are difficult to make-up following an absence. Attendance can impact your grade. The official SHS 7-Day Attendance Policy will be strictly observed. You will be notified if you approach 7 absences and will be assigned a detention for each absence that exceeds this number. Failure to attend assigned detentions will result in an incomplete for the course.

Tardies - You will need to make every effort to be in class on time. Not being in your seat at the beginning of class is counted as a tardy. After three unexcused tardies, each subsequent tardy will result in a detention. Unserved detentions can lead to loss of credit.

Excused Absences - An unanticipated excused absence (illness, family emergency, etc.) needs to be made up as soon as possible upon your return to school. Unless other arrangements are made, you will usually have an amount of time equal to your absence to make up the work. Arrangements for an anticipated excused absence (athletic event, field trip, family vacation) must be made before the absence. In such cases, every effort will be made to make the work available to you ahead of time. Don't assume that it is okay to turn in an assignment late or miss a test because of an anticipated absence–the assignment may not be accepted if you have not made prior arrangements!

Unexcused Absences - You will not be able to make up work for an unexcused absence. Upon accumulation of 6 unexcused absences, credit may be denied for the course.
