Attendance

    There are only 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.

    Absences: The Jackson HS attendance policy will be followed. Regular attendance is required for a lab class setting such as this course. Many times, you will not have the opportunity to make up the work in class and will have to devote time after school to complete the projects. This will be done on days when the lab is open. Please check with the instructor to see when the lab is open.
    Tardies: JHS now has an official tardy policy that will be followed in this course:

    • A tardy is counted if the student arrives after the tardy bell but before 10 minutes have passed.
    • An absence is counted after a student has missed 10 minutes of class.
    • Three unexcused tardies count as one unexcused absence.
    • For each tardy after three, a restitution plan will be completed.

    Attendance Slips: Students must bring a slip to class after being tardy or absent. You will get these in the attendance office, either excused or unexcused. If you have an unexcused absence, you are responsible for bringing me the slip when the absence has been excused.
