  • Students are required to make up an absence at the scheduled remediation session following the absence.  
  • Participants are withdrawn from the Night School program after missing any time over six hours.
  • Upon the return to Night School after an absence, the student must have a DATED note written and signed by the parent explaining the absence. The note MUST have a phone number where the parent may be reached at night . This information must be presented to the Night School attendance clerk.
  • If a student is absent with extenuating circumstances beyond the six hours, the parent or guardian should meet with the Night School principal IMMEDIATELY.
  • In addition, if it is necessary for a student to leave before the 8:30 p.m. dismissal, he/she must check out through the Night School office.
  • All absences must be made up on one of the regular scheduled remediation times. No exceptions.
  • Remediation sessions are scheduled throughout the semester (see remediation sessions listed below).
