We do not use “excused or unexcused”. Absences either count or don’t count towards your 5 days each semester.

What doesn't count?

What happens if I go over?
Once a student goes over 5 days they owe 1.5 hours of time outside the classroom for every hour they are over.
Example: 7 absences semester one = 3 hours outside makeup
Once over the 5 days students will lose their CRTC credits
Complete a YELLOW plan Meet 1:1 with your instructor to create a plan to make up your owed hours. Set a due date
Complete all work by the due date and submit to your teacher for approval
If you go over your hours again, or do not complete your plan you will then have to meet with CRTC director Steve Rothenberg to request your credits back.
Who is in charge of Attendance?
Ms. Kate handles daily attendance and communication with schools. Please see her in the office anytime you know you will be out and to hand in any documentation.
Mrs. Morris will be coming around to classes and meeting with students when they hit 3 absences to make them aware. Once you are over 5 she will be around to have you sign the loss of credit and make a plan for recovery.
At any time, you can request a meeting with Mr. Rothenberg to discuss an extenuating circumstance that will have you missing class.
The best thing you can do is to stay in communication with your teacher and the office about your attendance. If you are not here and we do not hear from you, we can not help you.

If you are unsure, please come ask in the office ahead of time and we will let you know.
