Several students have exceeded the attendance policy limit for absences in a single class period. If you have missed more than 6 days in a class period, you will need to make up time for the absences over 6 (50 minutes per class period over 6). Make Up time sessions are offered everyThursday afternoon from 3:30-5:00 in the Media Center. Be proactive and take advantage of this opportunity now and do not wait until the last minute to make up time. Students must also write a letter of appeal to the office administration. This letter should include reasons for your absences and a request for an appeal. You may email this letter to Mrs. Pruitt at email@example.com
Take care of this ASAP!! Time is running out. Speak with teachers about making up time if they are available as well, but please remember, this is at the teacher's discretion only.

Students: You MUST submit an attendance appeal if you have accumulated more than 6 absences in a class (see Board policy 4400 at www.wilkescountyschools.org by clicking the headline above). In order to begin the appeals process, you must write a "statement of appeal." This statement can be handwritten or typed and must include the reasons for your attendance policy violation. These letters need to be turned in to the front office. You only need to submit one letter of appeal (if you have missed more than 6 days in multiple classes, please be sure to include that in your letter). Once you have submitted a letter, the committee will begin to review your case. In order for an appeal to be granted, you must be passing the course and have all make up time completed. Otherwise, you will not receive credit.
Make up time sessions are available every Thursday afternoon from 3:30-5:00 in the media center.
