TOHS Attendance OfficeState law requires pupils to attend their assigned classes every day school is in session.Any student missing more than 30 days for any one class in a semester will not receive credit for that class. Passes for personal reasons will not be issued during lunch periods. All absences not cleared by a note or parent phone call to the attendance office within 24 hours, will be considered truant. The absence must be cleared for the truancy to be removed.Late arrivals and single period absences cannot be excused by a parent/guardian once the student has arrived on campus. Parent requests for early release or late arrival due to medical appointments and family emergencies will be permitted. The student must obtain parental permission to leave campus during the school day and must sign out with attendance prior to leaving campus.Excused Absence/Tardy: (Make up work allowed)1. Personal Illness or Quarantine2. Illness or death in the immediate family3. Medical and dental appointments4. Funerals (for immediate family)5. Call to court/detained by law enforcement6. Religion7. Employment interview.We encourage the scheduling of all appointments after school hours (12:55pm).Consequences:Students with unexcused absences will be referred to an Assistant Principal for interventions and attendance make-up. Excessive unexcused absences and/or truancies will result in referral to the School Attendance Review Board (SARB).
