Students are expected to attend and be on time for all required classes and activities at El Puente. Parent/guardian must call if a student is going to be late or absent. Students who fail to attend classes regularly will be evaluated according to the following standard:


• Students who fail to attend 75% of their classes will be referred to the social worker/administrator/staff member for evaluation. A parent/guardian conference may be scheduled to discuss the student’s continuation in the program. If no legitimate reason exists for a student’s poor attendance and/or the student fails to follow conditions of a contract of improvement, the student will be dropped. If a parent/guardian/student chooses to appeal the decision, the parent/guardian/student must make the request in writing within three days of the student being dropped. Parent/guardian/student will present his/her case to an administrator of the school. Actions will be decided by an administrator.

• Students that attend class 90% of the time are considered to be in good standing as far as attendance is concerned.

• If, due to illness or some unavoidable conflict a student misses school the student’s parent/guardian must call the school on the day of the absence. The student should also bring in a written explanation signed by the parent or guardian the next day. If the absence is longer than three days for illness, the student is required to bring in a doctor’s excuse. These absences (illness/unavoidable conflict) will still be counted in the student’s overall monthly attendance percentage.
