Rules and Regulations
A student will be allowed a maximum of one (1) excused absence for each semester class.
Arriving after 9 AM or missing 1.5 hours is considered an absence.
- Excused absences will include illness, family emergencies and family trips.
- A skip will result in immediate dismissal from summer school.
- If a student exceeds the attendance requirements in a class, he/she will not receive credit for the class.
- A parent must call the school (572-0967) in the morning to report a student absent. The WHS office will be open at 7 AM daily. Students who are absent are to report directly to the classroom.
- Leaving the building at any time without the permission of Mr. Abuhl or the supervising instructor is expressly forbidden.
A student must make up any amount of time he/she is absent to comply with DPI's requirement of in class time :
(60 hours for semester classes, 120 hours for year classes).
- Any makeup time is to be spent in the designated room from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM each day and must start the day the student comes back to school. It is strongly recommended NOT to miss the last few days of class due to the inability to get the time made up before the next session begins or the end of summer school. All first session makeup time needs to be completed BEFORE the start of second session.
- If you show animals, projects, etc. at the fair, you are responsible to contact the judge and make arrangements to have your project judged after school. Days missed for the fair count against you and will need to be made up.
- If you are in a summer sport such as Legion or Babe Ruth baseball, softball, etc., you may want to reconsider summer school and take classes during the regular school year.
- Leaving summer school for summer football, basketball, wrestling, volleyball or any other types of camps will result in you going over your days.
Students who are tardy are to report directly to class. If a student exceeds two (2) tardies for a semester class or driver's education, they WILL NOT receive credit for the class. If tardy or absent part of the day, the time must be made up the day they are tardy/absent.
In the event that a student shows up late and they have already used their two (2) tardies but they still have an absence, we will count their third (3) tardy as an absence and they will have to make up the time they missed. At this point, they are out of absences and tardies and, the next time they are late/absent, they will be dismissed from the summer school class with no credit given. Make-up time for tardies will be rounded to 15 minutes (i.e. Tardy by 5 minutes = 15 minutes of make up time or 20 minutes tardy= 30 minutes of make-up time.).
Course Credit/Report Cards
Grades of A, B, C, D will be considered passing. Grades will be issued at the end of each session.
Students are expected to follow the same Code of Conduct as they do during the regular school year.
