Is there an Attendance Policy?

Yes. The Sequoia District's Attendance Policy requires that students attend class regularly in order to receive credit for that class.

Sequoia High School students will not receive credit for a semester class if they have 13 or more absences in a class, where 3 or more of the absences are cuts (unexcused absences). The grade that will show is an NA if the student is passing the class.

The parent/guardian of the Sequoia student may only appeal an NA grade. This form is in the principal's office and must be completed by parent, signed by teacher, then approved/denied by the principal. Credit for the course, if the student has earned a passing grade, will be adjusted if the principal approves the appeal.

When does an absence become a cut?

Student absences must be excused by a guardian within 5 school days of the absence. After the 5th day the absence becomes unexcused if it is not cleared. If the student is absent 5 (five) consecutive school days, a medical note must be provided to excuse absences after the fifth day.

Absences can be cleared by a note or by a telephone call to the Attendance Office.

Absences will not be cleared once the 5 day window to clear an absence has expired. They are registered as unexcused on the student's record.

13 or more absences with 3 or more cuts = an "NA" grade (NO CREDIT).

How can I find out my attendance record?

You can check your attendance online on Infinite Campus. Absences and tardies are updated daily.

Infinite Campus can be accessed by using the link on the front page of the school website. If you are a parent or student and have either lost your log-in information or do not know it, you can email Ms. Analisa Marolache at imarolache@seq.org.
