Charles Carroll High School 9-12
2700 E. Auburn St.
AttendanceCharles Carroll High School encourages good attendance. Coming to school each day is very important to the learning process. Illness or family emergencies often necessitate a child to be absent from school. Upon the student’s return to school, he/she must bring a note to the advisor from a parent or guardian explaining the nature of the absence. Until such a note is received, a student’s absence will be counted as “unexcused”. If the absence is of significant duration, please contact the school counselor so that arrangements for assignments and homework can be made. All assignments missed, due to absence, are expected to be made up by the student. Continual absences will result in a referral to truancy and/or family court. Students may also receive an “F- attendance” grade for courses regardless of the student’s numerical academic grade.
Students who arrive after 8:00 AM are counted as late. Doors open at 7:35 AM.
Students who are late must make-up all work at the school detention that afternoon. Repeated lateness will result in a referral to SMART (the Saturday alternative to suspension program.)
Cutting ClassStudents who do not report to class and are not marked absent are considered to be cutting class. Violators are immediately assigned a detention to be served the first day they return to school. Repeat offenders will be subject to additional disciplinary action that may include a referral to the S.M.A.R.T. Program, suspension or a transfer to another school. Repeat offenders will not be invited to participate in special incentive activities and programs.
Early DismissalsAccording to State Law, all appointments, including medical and dental appointments are to be scheduled after school hours. Early dismissal will be granted only when (1) a parent/ guardian comes to school for the students (Telephone requests can not be honored), or (2) when the student presents an official signed appointment slip indicating date/time of appointment, address and phone of the doctor/dentist, and a signed note from the parent/guardian with a phone number to reach the parent/guardian for verification. Students must present this documentation to the nurse prior to 8:15 AM on the day of the dismissal.
School Entrance ProceduresStudents and all visitors to the school must enter through the Edgemont Street door. Students must be in proper uniform and have their Identification card. Students will scan their ID card and proceed through the metal detector.
