New Attendance School Policy
Livi Redden/Pop Culture Link Editor
Do you struggle to get up early? Are you a night owl? Are you late to school.. a lot? Do you have many tardies and absences? If you answered yes to any of these, you should probably read this article. It’s hard to get up every morning, get dressed, and head to a place you go to 5 days a week for 75% of the year. If you aren’t in class at 7:55, you’re late. You get 4 minutes in between classes, which is barely enough time to walk to your next class - let alone have a 30 second conversation with a friend - and if you aren’t on time to your next class, you’re late. Throughout the year you also go on vacations or honestly just don’t want to go to class that day, and then you get absences. With all of this added up you end up with lots and lots of attendance school. All students struggle with these things but they have to be sorted out now before we go out in the real world. Attendance school isn’t always fun but their has to be a way to keep grades and attendance up. School is hard and so is managing your time but high school is the time we have to develop our time and work ethic skills, that’s why school attendance must be enforced. At CCHS, if you reach 5 absences/tardies in one period throughout a quarter, you must go to attendance school. Attendance school used to be every morning Mon-Thurs @ 7:05 am all quarter. Now attendance school is only the last two weeks of the quarter. This is a bummer because if you have a lot of attendance school to get rid of a no-grade, you have to get up early a lot in such a short period of time. The attendance school policy change makes sense because I'm sure teachers don't want to come early all quarter when kids don't even come till the last 3 weeks of the quarter. You can also get attendance school credit in Math Lab which is Mon-Thurs after school @ 2:30-3:30. One absence takes an hour to make up and 2 tardies takes an hour to make. Head on over to attendance school to get rid of you no-grade quick, before it's too late! See you there!!

Hiya! My name's Brett Francis, and I am currently a senior at CCHS. I'm an experienced interdimensional time-traveler and dragon trainer and all of my best friends are ghosts, robots, and aliens. I find our reality to be exceedingly boring, so why bother living in it? I may be a bit weird, but in my opinion, weird is the best way of living.
