To report an absence, please call the Attendance Line at (989) 227-0170

An absence is considered as missing half (3 hours) or all of a school day without a valid or excuse (i.e. Doctor’s appointment/note, funerals, court appointments, etc.).

A Tardy is arriving more than 15 minutes late.

If absences are unavoidable, please adhere to the following:   

  • Parents or guardians must call the school by 8:00 a.m. on the day of your absence. If you are not in attendance, we will make every effort to contact you and your parents or guardians.

Unverified Absences: 

  • It is the responsibility of the student to verify their absence with a note and/or doctor’s excuse within 24 hours of their return to school.  Unverified absences will be considered unexcused.

  • Ten (10) or more absences (excused + unexcused) per trimester will result in being dropped for the remainder of the trimester. Special circumstances (funerals or medical situations, etc.) will be evaluated on a case by case basis. You will be able to re-enroll for the next trimester if there are open spots available. Three (3) unexcused tardies will be considered equivalent to 1 absence.

  • By failing to attend school you are showing your disinterest in your education. This lack of interest, ultimately, is leading to a lack of progress in your classes and delaying or reducing your likelihood of graduating.


  • Tardiness will not be tolerated.  The school is comprised of one hall so there is plenty of time to get to class.  If a student is late because they are with a teacher, the tardy will be excused.  If a student is late because they are taking extended bathroom breaks or being irresponsible, they will receive one warning before receiving a write up.
