Attendance and timeliness are aspects of student success and the Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac Catholic High School learning culture. Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac Catholic School’s learning environments are structured using a modified block schedule.
Students are permitted ten (10) absences per period (excused and unexcused) per semester.
An excused absence is a recorded absence which has been cleared with a written and signed communication from a parent or guardian. Excused absences count toward a student’s overall allowable absences. The following are reasons for an excused absence from school:
It is Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac Catholic High School’s goal to produce academically prepared young adults who possess a sense of personal accountability and are equipped with the necessary skills to enter the workforce where punctuality is essential.
Students are considered late when they arrive for class after 7:30 a.m. Students arriving to class up to 15 minutes after the tardy bell rings (7:45 a.m.) will go straight to class where the absence will be changed to a tardy by their teacher. Students arriving after 7:45 a.m. must report to the High School Office to obtain a readmit and provide a reason for their tardiness.
Please see the Student Handbook for Absence and Tardy Policy.
