Carson High School Attendance Policies and Procedures
Regular attendance at school is a key component in your child's academic success. Make-up work cannot substitute for missed instruction, non-participation in class discussions, and monitored classroom practice. If your child does need to miss school, the absence will be considered unexcused until acceptable documentation is brought to the attendance office on the morning that he/she return to school. Acceptable documentation includes:
A note from the parent indicating the dates the student was ill.
A note from the doctor indicating the dates the student was ill.
Funeral documentation, which includes the dates of the funeral.
Court documentation indicating that the student was called as a witness.
Three tardies to any class will equate to one unexcused absence. Tardies are especially common at first and/or second period due to missed buses, oversleeping, and car trouble. All tardies are unexcused. Students are expected to arrive on time to each of their seven class periods.
If you have any questions regarding your child's attendance, you can contact Ms. Cholico (9th Grade Attendance Improvement Counselor) or Ms. Quinones (PSA Counselor) at the attendance office.
