SRHS Attendance Policy states that students with more than 10 UNEXCUSED absences in a single class period may receive an "NC" or "No Credit" for the class at the end of the semester. ?However, students will have the opportunity to earn credit for an UNEXCUSED absence by attending 1 hour of tutoring or attending an ATTENDANCE RECOVERY session.
1 hour of tutoring or attendance recovery = 1 unexcused absence recovered
Dear Parent/ Guardian:
We have instituted a systematic approach to support our Santa Rita students as it relates to arriving to class/school on time daily. As you are aware, our primary focus at Santa Rita is twofold: (1.) To ensure a safe and orderly campus and learning environment, and (2.) ensure all students are learning at high levels and are prepared for their next step either in a career path or post-secondary education.
Studies have shown that being on time and ready to learn is equally as important as creating quality work. If our students are striving for success in their adult lives, they must begin to understand and acquire those traits that lead to success. Please take the time to address the importance of timeliness and encourage them to begin to build and acquire the positive traits that will help them to live their most fulfilling and successful adult lives.
The following is our progressive system of support to improve student timeliness and overall attendance:
4th Tardy Parent/Guardian Contact
5th Tardy Parent/Guardian Contact AND 1 Lunch Detention
6th Tardy Parent/Guardian Contact AND 2 Lunch Detentions
7th Tardy Parent/Guardian Contact AND 1 After School Detention
8th Tardy Parent/Guardian Contact AND 2 After School Detentions
9th Tardy Parent/Guardian Contact AND 1 Saturday School
10th Tardy Parent/Guardian Contact AND 2 Saturday Schools
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ANY OF THE INITIAL CONSEQUENCES LISTED ABOVE WILL RESULT IN DISCIPLINE RANGING FROM IN-SCHOOL INTERVENTION (ISI) TO OUT OF SCHOOL SUSPENSION (OSS).
If you have any questions regarding our Tardy Policy, please contact our Administration Office.
