Attendance

  • ATHS Attendance Policy demonstrates to students that:

    Good attendance and punctuality are fundamental to success in life.
     
    A significant part of a student’s experience in any given subject area is derived from being in attendance for classroom instruction, discussion,and participation.
     
    Good attendance reduces the amount of make-up work to be completed, reduces stress, and optimizes opportunities for learning.

    Students are expected to attend school every day.  If a student is sick, he or she should stay home and a parent or guardian should call school before 9:30 to report the absence.
