At the beginning of the 2011-12 school year, Nitro High instituted a revised attendance policy which is designed to foster regular attendance in class, a standard expectation conducive to academic achievement and workplace accountability.
This revised policy states that any student who has more than 10 unexcused absences in any class in any given semester will not be permitted to participate in the following, regardless of their grades:
– Winter Formal
– Cedar Point
It is important to note that parents may write excuses for up to 5 days of absences per year due to illness, family emergency, etc. Also, to be excused, excuses must be presented to the Attendance Clerk within 5 school days of the absence.
An absence will be recorded once a student has missed 15 minutes of an individual class.
Very Important: Note that, if graduation requirements have been met, seniors in violation of the Attendance Policy will receive diplomas but will NOT be permitted to walk at the Graduation ceremony.
