We are running extremely low on masks and will only be giving them out in an emergency situation. Students must bring a mask to school each day.
This announcement is to explain how unexcused absences and unexcused tardies will be calculated in order for you to be eligible to attend prom. For the purpose of determining unexcused absences and unexcused tardies for the 2020-2021 school year, we will use March 1st as the first date for these calculations. Therefore, ALL unexcused absences and unexcused tardies accumulated after March 1st will count against your total for losing the opportunity to attend the prom. The total number of UNEXCUSED ABSCENCES is 10. The total number of UNEXCUSED TARDIES is 15. Any student who accumulates more than 10 unexcused absences or 15 unexcused tardies after the March 1st date will not be able to attend the prom.
Also, weekly academic eligibility will be used to determine if you are academic eligible to attend the prom. Any student who is failing two or more classes the Thursday before the date of the prom will not be academically eligible to attend the prom.
