Attendance Requirements

Because of the compact and accelerated nature of the programs, students must be in attendance every day. Under extenuating circumstances, one absence will be excused for these courses. Although these absences may be excused, the student is still responsible for all make-up work/tests/etc. Summer gym absences will require that students make up the time missed. Students must participate in the entire course to receive credit toward graduation. Summer vacations and other appointments should not be scheduled during Summer School.
