Privileged Activities

(MORP, PROM and GRADUATION)

Attendance/Tardies/Discipline

Highlander Students,

Below is information concerning privileged after-school activities/dances in relation to school attendance and discipline.  Please take the time to review this information and contact me with any questions.

Discipline - any student suspended during the quarter of a privileged activity is not eligible to attend such activity (both Prom and Graduation in the 4th Quarter). Any student recommended for expulsion at any point in the year is not eligible to attend privileged activities for the remainder of the year.

Unexcused Absences and Tardies - Any unexcused absences, and tardies greater than 2, will result in loss of school-related privileges unless corrected by one of the provisions listed below:

1. Attend Friday School - 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Fridays. 

- ONE Friday school served will make-up 1 unexcused absence or 4 tardies 

2. Attend Tuesday or Thursday School - 3:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

- ONE Tu/Th school served will make-up 2 tardies or ½ unexcused day 

3. Complete Volunteer Work - Students can organize a time to do volunteer work outside of OHHS. The volunteer work must be completed with a nonprofit or recognized charitable organization.

- Each hour of volunteer work will make-up ½ unexcused day or 2 tardies.

- These hours MUST be documented on letterhead from the organization only (not a parent letter). The letter must include the name of the person from the organization, hours volunteered, and a phone number where we can call to verify the hours. Opportunities exist through organizations such as food pantries, churches, or another registered non-profit organization. 

Students CANNOT make-up unexcused absences beyond 10 and/or tardies beyond 20. Therefore, students with unexcused absences beyond 10 and tardies beyond 20 are NOT eligible to participate in privileged activities.

If you have questions regarding your absences or tardies, please contact Mrs. Maxwell in the Attendance Office at [email protected] or myself, and please do not wait until the last minute to begin correcting attendance/tardy issues.

Sincerely.

J. Travis Hunt, Principal
