Students are most successful when they are in class every day and on time. For this reason, students are assigned After School Detentions and/or reported to the County of Ionia for truancy when this does not occur. Starting with the 4th tardy, students will be assigned an After School Detention (see below) for each tardy in any given class. After 10 absences in a school year, it is possible that students will be reported to the County for truancy. It is extremely important that parents call in within 24 hours of an absence to excuse it to help avoid this process. Please see the student handbook for further details.
