Attendance & Absences

Success in school is directly related to regular school attendance. If a student is serious about completing the requirements for a high school diploma, they will not be absent arbitrarily.

Students at CJHS must be in school 3 hours per day, for a minimum of 15 hours per week. Students who fail to meet the required classroom hours will be scheduled a mandatory SST meeting with school staff, where they will try to come up with solutions to issues that may be hindering their attendance. If the lack of attendance continues, the student will be classified a habitual truant and, along with their parent/guardian, will be referred to the regional Student Attendant Review Board (SARB).
