Absence Procedures

  • Only a parent or guardian may phone the Attendance Office in the event of an absence.
  • Parent calls must be received within 48-hours of the student’s absence.
  • Students who are absent without parent verification will be considered truant (please see Student Handbook for Truancy definition and consequences).

Passport Procedures

When students need to leave campus during the school day, parents must call the Attendance Office passport line the morning that the scheduled early release is needed. Please follow voicemail prompt and leave a message with all the required information. The passport line is checked continuously throughout the day. Once the passport request is received for an early dismissal, the Attendance Office will deliver the student’s passport to the classroom. The student will be released from class at the time the parent has requested. Every effort should be made to schedule appointments outside of school hours. CCHS reserves the right to verify any passport request with a parent/guardian.

Students may not leave the school campus without a passport from the Attendance Office. Students will be released ONLY when the Attendance Office has received a parent/guardian request. Failure to follow this policy may result in truancy from school.

Tardy Policy

Any student who arrives late to campus must report to the Attendance Office upon arrival. A tardy is defined as being up to 20 minutes late to class. Students who are more than 20 minutes late will be given an absence for that period, and a parent call to verify the absence is required. Excused and unexcused tardies are counted toward the Excessive Tardy policy. Excused tardies for a doctor’s appointment requires a medical note/receipt from the visit along with a parent call. The Attendance Office reserves the right to determine whether a student is excused or unexcused in their tardiness.

Please see the Student Handbook for Excessive Absence Policy & Excessive Tardy Policy.
