Consistent class attendance is a critical component for students’ academic success and completion of graduation requirements. As a result, Heritage’s attendance policy and procedures have been carefully designed to encourage regular student attendance through the implementation of a combination of interventions and consequences.
Important Attendance and Health Office Information
If students become ill at school and don’t feel well enough to attend class, they need to go to the Attendance/Health Office in order for the absence to be excused. If they stay on campus and choose not to go to class or the Health Office, the absence will not be excused. Students should let their teacher know if they are not feeling well and they will be excused to go see the health assistant. The Health Office is located in the main office by Attendance. Your student may rest for 10 to 15 minutes, and if they feel better they will return to class. If not, we will give you a call and you and your student will determine if it would be best to go home. We are concerned about the safety of all students so if they are ill, they need to be in the Health Office or in class if they are here at school.
