Attendance

Attendance is a critical factor in the intellect and character formation of young men and women. It reflects respect for teachers, fellow students, and for the individual student's development. In addition, numerous absences may have significant negative academic impact. JSerra's rules are clearly stated in the Parent  Student Handbook and should be read by students and parents.

The following reflects the basic rules regarding absences and tardies:

Full or partial day absences

The form on this page must be submitted before 9:00 a.m. identifying the parent/guardian who is notifying the school, student's name, grade, and reason for absence.

Leaving school early

The form on this page must be submitted before 8:00 a.m. identifying the parent/guardian who is notifying the school, the student's name, grade, time of departure, and reason for early departure.

  • The student must report to the Attendance Office before school.
  • The student will be issued an Off-Campus Permit. The student will show the permit to the appropriate teacher for release from class.
  • The student will then report to the Attendance Office to  be signed out by a parent/guardian.
  • The student who drives himself/herself must sign out at the Attendance Office before leaving school.

Leaving school due to illness

The student must report to the Nurse's Office when ill.

  • The nurse will determine the severity of the illness and will notify the parent/guardian.
  • The parent/guardian must report to the Attendance Office to sign the student out and then report to the nurse for dismissal.
  • The student who drives himself/herself must sign out at the Attendance Office before leaving school.

Tardies

First period tardy is 10 minutes. Students who arrive under 10 minutes late for school should report to their assigned class. Students will not be marked absent if they arrive up to 10 minutes late.

After the first period of the day, the tardy limit is 5 minutes (i.e., a student is marked absent if they arrive 5 minutes or more after the second bell).
