LEAD Innovation Studio is committed to the philosophy that every student should attend every class every day. Regular attendance and promptness are expected in all classes and are essential for success in school. Learning to participate in group discussions, developing an appreciation for the views and abilities of other students, and forming the habit of regular attendance are legitimate objectives for any course. Learning lost due to absence can never be adequately replaced.
Although medical notes are not required to excuse an absence, we are encouraging students to bring in a note from appointments for his/her file. Parents still need to call to excuse a student for being late or absent for a medical appointment, but a doctor's note on letterhead with the specific date of the appointment will be put on file when provided. Notes will need to be turned in to the attendance office so they can be entered into Infinite Campus and put into the student's file. If your student is in the A+ program, attendance will make a copy for the student's file, and they will keep the original for a file at home if they need it for any reason for the A+ program. Medical notes include family doctors, urgent care, hospitals, physical therapy, orthodontist, dentist, etc. All A+ attendance should be directed to the A+ coordinators.
Attendance is taken at 8:20 am. Students arriving after 8:10 am may get a "grab and go" breakfast, however this is not a pass for being tardy. Late bus riders will be provided with a pass to class. Students arriving to class after 8:20 without an office or bus pass will be counted as tardy.
