All students are expected to attend each class and to be on time. Absenteeism is a prominent cause of failure. Success in school depends on regular attendance and punctuality.

Students are responsible for the information missed in their absence. They should see their teacher for make-up work. Missed tests will be rescheduled at the teacher’s sole discretion, but must be completed within one week. If at all possible, plan family vacations and other travel during the scheduled breaks of NVS.

Reporting an Absence

Parents are required to call on or before the day of the absence. Calls are received by the main office during the normal school hours. To insure accuracy, please provide the following information: Student’s Name, date(s) of absence, reason for absence, caller’s relation to the student.

Excessive Absences

Excessive absences will normally have an adverse effect on student achievement. Students who are frequently absent will be referred to the administration and parents contacted. 22


Students are expected to be on campus for lineup at 7:45. He or she will be marked late. Punctuality is an important expectation of good student behavior. Punctual students show respect for their classmates as well as respect for their own learning. Coming in late disrupts the flow of learning taking place. Not only that, the late student misses initial instruction time that is given at the beginning of class. This policy recognizes that sometimes being late is unavoidable. In each marking period a student will be allowed three unexcused late starts. A student that is late must go and check in at the office and get a late slip to gain admission to class. Although each case will be dealt with on an individual basis, excessive late to school or class may result in:
• Missing the first lesson of the day.
• Detention by the homeroom/classroom teacher.
• Detention by the Vice-Principal or Principal.
• Half day or full day suspension.
