Attendance Information
Regular school attendance is vital to student academic success. High school attendance is taken in each class period.  Under current attendance guidelines, all students must be absent no more than five days in order to earn credit for the course. 

Ninth grade students enrolled in a semester elective or P.E. course must have five or fewer absences and have a passing grade in order to earn credit for the course.  
 
Ninth grade students enrolled in an "A" Day/"B" Day course must have five or fewer absences and have a passing grade in order to earn credit for the course.  

 Student absences for each course are listed on the student's report card. 
 
  Students seeking attendance waivers should download the "Request for Waived Days" form linked to the TCR homepage. Waivers are granted only when the absence is necessary and students must have proper documentation submitted to the waiver committee in order for a request to be considered. Waiver forms are also available in the counseling office. 

If a student has a grade of "FF" as a final grade in any course, the student academically passed the course, but were absent too often to earn credit. Students have an opportunity to recover absences in Attendance Make Up offered on designated dates during the school year and in the summer.
