ABSENCE: The only acceptable excuse is illness attested to by a DOCTOR'S NOTE. If a student is ill, a parent/guardian must telephone the school in the morning. The Doctor's note must be brought to the Main Office. The student should return to school prepared to take the (school) test that day OR/ THE FIRST AVAILABLE TIME IN HIS SCHEDULE.UNEXCUSED ABSENCE = ZERO!
On days when a student is NOT scheduled for an exam, he need not report to school. When in school and not in a test, students must be in the cafeteria, link area, any designated supervised study area, or in an office where business is being transacted. Students may not roam the corridors while exams are in session.
