SBHS Attendance Highlights
This year we will have a lot of updates in our attendance office! Please feel free to reach out to Mr.Robinson if you have any questions!
Students are late at 8:20am, they will need to come through the front doors and get a tardy from Mr.Robinson. He will determine if the tardy is excused or unexcused.
Lawful Tardies: In order for a tardy to be excused written documentation must be provided.
1. Illness on the part of the student with written medical excuse
2. Emergency and/or hardships at the discretion of the principal
5. Teacher, Guidance or Administrator Conference
Unlawful Tardies: Three written parent excuses for any reason or combination of reasons will be accepted per semester. Any additional excuses must be official written medical excuses etc. or will be considered unlawful.
1. Illness on the part of the student without a written medical excuse
2. Oversleeping, traffic, carpool trouble or other “personal reasons”
3. Missed Bus
4. Car trouble
Students who drive to school have the ability to sign out early for appointments. Parents must fill out the early dismissal form by 9am, the day they need their student to be dismissed. Anything after 9am will be sent to an administrator for approval. Parents can still come to the school in person and sign students out.
NO SIGN OUTS AFTER 3:10
To reduce the number of paper excuses, we are introducing to you a paperless way to turn in excuses. You can scan in your excuses to SBHSATTENDANCE@ACPSD.NET
You should get a response within 24-48 hours of your submission. You can also for your convinence check the powerschool app for confirmation.
- Truant: A child from age five until age seventeen years meets the definition of a truant when the child has three consecutive unlawful absences or a total of five unlawful absences. (Suspension is not counted as an unlawful absence for truancy purposes.)
- Habitual Truant: A child, ages 12 to 17, who accumulates two or more additional unlawful absences after an intervention plan has been developed by the school, parent/guardian and the child.
- Chronic Truant: A child, ages 12 to 17, who has been through the intervention process and who has reached the level of habitual truant, has been referred to Family Court and placed under a school attendance order, and continues to accumulate unlawful absences.
