Zero Period Attendance Expectations


Punctual and faithful attendance to zero period is particularly important for several reasons:

  • there are a limited number of these classes

  • zero period is outside the regular school day  


In order to maximize instructional time, we have established attendance and punctuality criteria only for zero period absences and tardies.


Attendance:  Students are expected to attend zero period class every day except Wednesday. Students will be withdrawn from a zero period class after the ninth zero period absence*.  They may reschedule the class later in the day if it is offered.  Once a student has been dropped from a zero period class for poor attendance or tardiness, he or she will not be eligible to take a zero period class the following semester.  There are no excused absences for zero period (neither for illness nor sports conflicts).


Punctuality:  Students are expected to be on time to zero period.  The school tardy policy will be followed for zero period.


  • Any combination of absences/tardies in zero period that equal 9 will be grounds for REMOVAL of a student from zero period.   


  • All day and zero period only absences will count towards the students total.
