> County Attendance Policy:  As we start the new marking term please remember that the county attendance policy has reset.  During the 2nd marking term, it’s important to keep in mind the following:

 

5 or more UNEXCUSED Absences within a marking term:

  1. The student must participate in an attendance intervention plan with the School Principal to avoid failing the marking term.
  2. Attendance intervention plans may require staying after school for up to 2 hours a day. This may require the parent to make alternative transportation arrangements as a result.
  3. Failure of a marking term can result in a reduced overall grade point average, and thus, loss of eligibility for extracurricular activities.
  4. Continued unexcused absences beyond 5 can result in referral to outside agencies through the Wicomico County Truancy Reduction Program.

> Sports Awards: Monday, November 18th at 8am in the Auditorium. This is for athletes that finished the season in good standing. Parents are invited to attend (they may go directly to the auditorium lobby).
