Good attendance is critical for success in school. All absences will be coded unexcused unless an email, written note, online absent form, or educational opportunity form is received within two days from the parent/guardian.
Too many absences whether excused or unexcused, can keep students from succeeding in school and in life. How many are too many? 10% of the school year, which is 18 missed days or 2 days a month, can knock students off track.
Good attendance: 6 or fewer absences
Warning signs: 10 to 17 absences
Chronic absence: 18 or more days
20 or more absences can hold a student back from being promoted to the next grade
CCS new attendance policy is now counting any 5 unexcused check-outs and tardies as 1 unexcused absence. We will require a Dr.'s note at time of check-in if a student or parent states being late due to being at a Dr. or dentist appointment. The same applies for check-out, if leaving to go to a Dr. or dentist appt. a Dr./dental note needs to be turned in the next day.
Sarah Jones, Our School Social Worker will be handling all attendance concerns.
She will be at C C Griffin on the following days: Monday, Tuesday, and some Friday's
