LHS Attendance Update
Why Attendance Matters
Longmont High School believes that good attendance is critical to academic success and to a successful high school experience. When a student misses a class, they miss a learning opportunity, which cannot be recaptured. Educational research indicates that a significant part of the student's experience is derived from classroom relationships, activities, discussions, and participation. Regular attendance is of utmost importance for school interest, social adjustment and academic achievement, particularly for closing the achievement gap.
Prom & Attendance Update
Any students who are planning on attending the Junior/Senior Prom on Saturday, April 9 will be allowed to have no more than 5 days of unexcused absences (4 period absences equals 1 day) and/or 25 tardies beginning January 19, 2022 in the 11 weeks leading up to Prom. Reminder, absences must be excused within 48 hours of the absence.
General Attendance Tips and Reminders for All Students:
Leave home 10 minutes earlier than normal to be in your class ready to learn when the bell rings.
If you leave at lunch time or your off-block, watch the time closely to allow yourself time to be back and in class when the bell rings.
When you hear the 2-minute warning bell, that is your clue to head to class so you are there on time.
Be on the lookout for individual and class competitions, including Mr. Scheck’s Punctuality Club (on Instagram) and Trojan Time rewards.
