The Attendance Office monitors absences. Upon returning to school after an absence, students must get a permit from the Attendance Office. A note from the parent/guardian stating the reason for the absence must be submitted to this office within three days of returning to school. Failure to submit a note will result in an unexcused absence. Absences of more than 5 consecutive days require a doctor's note. Students may be returned to their zoned school for excessive absences.


    The only acceptable excuses for absences and tardiness are personal illness, sickness or death in the family, quarantine, weather or road conditions making travel dangerous, participation in off-campus activities with prior permission of the principal, emergencies or unusual circumstances recognized by the principal.


    Be on time to class! Tardiness will be monitored by your teachers. Three tardies may result in detention or a conduct grade reduction. Excessive tardiness may result in detention, conduct reductions, attendance probation, or other consequences, including possible exit from Kinder HSPVA.



    Unexcused Tardies

    Kinder HSPVA staff will check tardiness as carefully as absences. Three unexcused tardies within a grading period will result in a conduct grade of "S.” Six unexcused tardies will result in a conduct grade of "P."
