East Forsyth High School Student Attendance Policy
There is no substitute for uninterrupted personal contact between teachers and students in the classroom environment where learning experiences are carefully planned by the teachers. Even though students may make up class work missed because of absences, they may never be able to replace the educational, cultural and social contacts which they would have experienced through face-to-face instruction and class participation. Students with good attendance generally achieve higher levels of learning than those with poor attendance.
The East Forsyth High School community recognizes, however, that students miss school because of illnesses and other excused reasons. Students should follow defined procedures for bringing notes to excuse their absences. Students are required to collaborate with their teachers on making up missed assignments after returning to school from an absence in a timely manner.
