Attendance is the most significant indicator of student success. Any prolonged absence may have a negative effect of achievement and may result in a credit not being granted.
A student is completely responsible for advising the appropriate Vice-Principal and each of his/her teachers in writing (with a parental or guardian signature) of the dates of his/her departure using the Holiday/Extended Absence Form, which can be found in the Guidance Office, and return to school, at least two weeks before departing. This form must be signed by all of the student's course teachers and returned to appropriate Vice-Principal. Once approved, the form will then be filed in the attendance office.
A student is completely responsible for any missed work, handouts, notes, assignments, and tests.
