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 12 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.
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.
12 or more absences with 3 or more cuts = an "NA" grade (NO CREDIT).
You can check your attendance online on Infinite Campus. Absences and tardies are updated daily.
