Attendance Policy 2015-16

Please review the following policies carefully, as some policies may have changed from prior years.  Please contact your student’s administrator if you have any questions or concerns. 

Absentee Policy:  

·         A student under the age of 16 is required by state law to attend school. Additionally, a student may have his/her driver’s license revoked due to excessive absences. All doctor notes or other official documentation must be turned in within 5 days of the absence. NO PARENT NOTES ARE CONSIDERED AS EXCUSED ABSENCE.

  • A student with more than 9 unexcused absences in a half (1/2) credit class will receive a grade of F for the term regardless of the calculated grade. If time is not made up by the established deadline, the student will lose credit for the course.
  • A student will be considered absent from class if the student arrives or leaves class greater than or equal to 5 minutes. A parent/guardian may access the student’s record of attendance via SKYWARD. 
  • Participating in school activities or attending to school business is considered in attendance. The activity is considered a field trip and the only type of exempt absence.
  • Suspended for disciplinary reasons is not to attend school and will be counted absent. Absences due to suspension will not be counted as unexcused.

Tardiness: Students are expected to arrive to class on time. Each teacher is responsible for defining a tardy to his/her class and reporting student tardiness. At Lake Brantley, tardiness results in the following discipline: 1st tardy: verbal warning from teacher, 2nd tardy: written referral for a 1-hour school detention and phone call home from teacher.  Subsequent tardies will result in a referral to the building office for further disciplinary sanctions.
