Harwood Attendance Reminder
***Please Check this link for Important Attendance Reminders for Students and Caregivers
What is an excused absence?
Illness - Mental Health/Physical Health (with doctor’s note after 3 absences); Chronic absence due to illness will be marked unexcused absent
Death in the family
Post secondary opportunity visit
Is an unexcused absence a negative thing?
Unexcused absences are not a negative thing.
Singular, sporadic unexcused absences are not typically problematic and help us determine missed class/assignments and necessary follow up.
Accumulated unexcused absences flag unexpected patterns, and enables us to follow up and check in and find out more to best support student success and overall well-being.
What is our athletic eligibility attendance policy?
If a student is marked for an unexcused absence from any class they will miss a practice.
Students marked absent on a day of a game will sit out that day’s game.
Students who are considered truant, or engaged in a truancy process as defined by HUUSD District Policy may be considered ineligible to participate in co-curricular athletics. The athletic director will collaborate with administration to determine attendance plan, and potential timeline for reinstatement.
Students who abuse the attendance policy will be required to meet with the Athletic Director to reassess eligibility.
Ending the year STRONG will support us in beginning STRONG.
Thank you for your ongoing partnership,
Laurie, Meg and Duane
