Attendance

Responsibility for Attendance

Students are expected to attend all classes and to arrive for each class on time. Students shall follow their assigned daily schedules unless properly excused by the principal or authorized representative.

Each student shall provide a satisfactory written explanation from his or her parent for any absence from class and for the release of the student from school during the school day.

The Principal may, at his discretion, accept a personal or telephone contact with the parent in lieu of a written excuse for a student’s absence. Justifiable absences include those due to illness of the student, death in the family, medical or dental appointment, personal religious obligations, or other reasons acceptable to the principal.

Unexcused Absences and Class Cuts
  • An unexcused absence is one for which the parent does not have prior knowledge, consent, and/or legitimate reason.
  • When a student is absent without prior communication between the parent and the school, school personnel will notify the parent and take appropriate action based on the individual circumstances.
  • After two unexcused absences, a conference may be requested with the parent.
  • Absences and tardiness will be addressed by individual interventions with progressive consequences for students.
  • Students are fully responsible for completing any missed assignments. Teachers may assist the student and parent in identifying missed work, but are not obligated to provide make-up assignments.
All-Day Absences

Whenever any student accumulates a total of five unexcused days of absence in a school year, the school will call the parents to school, and a plan to resolve the nonattendance will be developed.

If an additional unexcused absence occurs in the same school year, a conference will be scheduled and the child and parents will be warned again.

The child can be expelled for non-attendance and non-performance.

  • Students who attend school regularly and arrive on time are more likely to perform well academically.
  • HHPS expects students to be in school and follow their assigned schedules unless their absence is excused due to illness, a death in the family, a medical or dental appointment, or religious obligations.
  • Parents must give the school a written explanation for any student absence or late arrival. Parents are asked to call or email the school attendance line if their child will be late or miss school.
  • If school officials do not receive notice, you will get a call and an e‐mail through the Message system notifying you that your child has not arrived at school as expected.
  • Absence or tardiness is unexcused, if the parent does not inform the school in advance or supply a note when the student returns to school.
  • Students are required to make up missed work so that they can co relate with the syllabus being taught in class.
