Program Expectations: Attendance Policy


Regular school attendance is very important.  What happens in the classroom is essential to both the academic and therapeutic process. Time lost from the class can never be regained. Regular attendance not only enhances the academic experience, but also is essential to our therapeutic skill development system. Therefore, students are expected to make a commitment to regular class attendance and parents are strongly urged to assist the school by supporting the attendance policy. Excessive absenteeism may result in consequences, such as loss of academic credit and will be addressed on an individual basis through a team meeting.

Due to safety concerns, if you must be absent, a parent/guardian must contact Housatonic Academy by 8:15 am.  You need to make up all missed schoolwork on your own time.
