Absences and Tardies

Student Absences
Students who arrive to school after 10:30AM will be considered absent for the day. They will still be able to attend classes when they are present.

In order to excuse an absence students or their parents will need to call Ashley in the main office at 617.349.6880 and provide documentation of a medical appointment, court appointment, or other relevant excuse for not attending school.

Tardy Policy

  • Students should arrive to class on time daily.
  • Students who are more than 30 minutes late to class will be considered absent for the day and will be marked in Aspen as such.
  • When a student initially arrives to school, regardless of time they will be permitted to enter the classroom under the following expectations.
    • If a student is more than 15 minutes late for the course they will owe the amount of time they are arriving late to the teacher after school that day or a day arranged by the teacher.
      • For example, if Joe Smith arrives to school for the first time that day at 9AM he will be allowed to enter the classroom but will owe their period 1 teacher 60 minutes after school.
    • Students who arrive 15 minutes or less tardy to their class will be permitted to enter the classroom. Any student who arrives later than this 15 minute window will accrue tardies. For every 5 tardies the student will earn 1 absence.
