At WHS, we strongly support that belief. The following attendance rules and procedures are intended to provide for the reasonable and customary needs of students to be absent from school, and the necessary authority for the school to regulate the attendance of its students. The school acknowledges the right and responsibility of the parent/guardian to report absences, but retains the legal prerogative to classify all absences in accordance with these rules. Therefore, parent reported absences may be deemed unverified if the absence fails to meet the definition of a verified absence as described on the following pages (see Classification of Absences).Note: State regulations regarding school funding require all schools to withdraw any student absent for fifteen consecutive days, regardless of the reason.Please refer to the current Student/Parent Guide for further information on all rules and regulations, policies and procedures, student activity information, important dates, etc.All students receive a copy of the Student Parent Guide/Planner at the beginning of the year.
