Attendance is an important factor in a student’s success. The
curriculum at
AHS
is rigorous; daily attendance is mandatory in
order to meet teacher expectations.

1.

Instructional assignments missed due to a student’s absence
from class must be made up in a timely fashion.

2.

It is the student’s responsibility to request work from the
teacher on the first day back to class.

3.

The student must make up all assignments as determined by
the teacher. A 60% passing grade must be made on each
assignment to make up the absence(s). All absences will count
toward loss of credit.

Failure
to attend school will result in denial or loss of driver’s
license from the State of Florida.


Please
see your student handbook to review additional
attendance guidelines.
