Saturday School is an opportunity for students to make up time they have missed due to absences. Saturday School is staffed by credentialed teachers who are ready and willing to tutor your child on their school work. It operates from mid-September through mid-May on selected Saturdays from 7:55 am till noon. Students may be assigned Saturday School for unexcused absences, or may voluntarily come to clear excused absences. It does not necessarily remove truancies from individual classes for the purposes of grade calculations by teachers. Students who have more than one truancy may be put on an attendance contract. Students may be suspended for violation of the contract. Students who do not attend assigned Saturday school will remain on the LOP list. Each Saturday school clears one full day of absence. Notices to class and phone calls home are provided as reminders to students but it is the student’s responsibility to attend. Students may attend without receiving a notice or phone call.
