Benicia High receives funding only when students are present in school. Students are expected to be in class on time and attend all classes daily. Excused absences include:
Vacations and trips out of town are not excused.
All absences must be cleared with a written note or telephone call within 72 hours to the attendance office. If your student’s absence is not cleared within this time, it will roll into a cut and the student will be assigned detention.
The administration requests your assistance with scheduling appointments and meetings involving students outside school hours. Students leaving campus or returning to campus must check out/in through the attendance office. Students leaving campus without approval through the attendance office will be issued detention(s).
Students absent on the day of a school activity may not attend or participate in such activity unless the Principal verifies the absence as an emergency. A student absent on Friday may not participate in schoolsponsored weekend activities.
Students are required by law to attend school every day (Education Code 48260)
