Cutting

Students are required to attend all assigned activities including classes, study hall, and detention. Unless a student is legitimately absent from school or has had the prior approval of a teacher or administrator to be out of an assigned area, a student who is not in attendance will be marked as cutting. A student who is more than 10 minutes late to a class without a pass (other than the first class of the day), will be assigned a cut for that class. Administrators will assign the student 7 points with the appropriate penalty for each offense. Cuts are considered serious violations. Students who lose credit due to cutting class will not be afforded the opportunity to participate in the appeals process. Any assignment, quiz, or test will receive a grade of zero if a class is cut.
