Attendance Policy

White House Heritage has a 95% attendance goal each day.

Attendance to school is the single most important factor of school success.

Attendance is a key factor in student achievement; therefore, students are expected to be present each day school
is in session.
Important Student/Parent Attendance Reminders

1. A note must be presented to the office before 8:15 on the morning of the students return for the absences to be marked excused/unexcused

2. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain any missing work

3. Students will have the number of days absent plus one (1) to make up any missed work for an excused absence

4. If a student is out for 3 or more days consecutively there must be a doctor’s note brought into school

5. Parents must submit a request in advance to the principal to approve an absence for the student to miss school for a non-school event

6. Students may be denied the privilege of making up missed work because of an unexcused absence or suspension

7. Students who accumulate five (5) absences in a grading period, excused or unexcused, may be required to bring in a doctor’s note for each additional absence

8. Parent notes are only accepted for five days each semester (10 per year)

9. Students leaving early must bring a note to the front office by 8:15 a.m

10. Students must submit upon returning from an early dismissal a note from the appointment for an excused absence

11. Should a student become sick at school, the student MUST report to the nurse. The nurse will contact the parent to come pick up the students and sign them out in the office
