SEARS to make up unexcused absences

Dear Parents, Please check with your students about their attendance and review with them in PowerSchool. If a student has over 5 unexcused classes in a semester class and/or over 3 unexcused absences in a quarter class they will fail due to attendance. If your student is over in days, please have them see Mr. Verburg to create a SEARS contract to make up the seat time. The following codes are unexcused in PowerSchool: UNX, PNT, CUT, or OSS. SEARS will be 7:30 – 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 3, Saturday, December 10, and Saturday, December 17. Students can do 2 sessions of SEARS and the cost is $25 per session
