Last Call For SEARS!

If you have more than 3 unexcused absences for a 9 week class or more than 5 unexcused absences for a semester class you will need to do SEARS to make up the seat time.

If you are over in unexcused days and do not do SEARS you cannot pass the class.

SEARS is $25 per session and will the last session will be Saturday, January 6.

See Mr. Verburg during your ILT to create a SEARS contract if you are over in days.

Reminder: SEARS for unexcused absences

Dear Parents,

This is a reminder that if your student is over 5 days unexcused absences in a semester class OR over 3 days unexcused in a 9-week class, then they need to come see Mr. Verburg during their ILT to make a SEARS contract. 

SEARS is $25 a session and will be held on Saturdays (December 2nd, 9th, 16th, and January 6th) from 7:30 AM to 11:30 AM in the Little Theater. Per district policy, students are only allowed to do 2 sessions of SEARS per semester.

As you look at your student’s attendance in PowerSchool, the following absence codes are considered unexcused:

  • UNX
  • PN
  • OSS
  • DSML

Please let Mr. Verburg know if you have any questions.
