Attendance Policy

It is the expectation of Kennedy High School that all students attend their classes and be on time.  Consistent and prompt attendance to a class will enable students to come ready to learn and be successful.  Our school is open and situated among a business and residential area so safety is also a concern.  When students are not in class, proper supervision for students cannot be provided.  Because safety for every Kennedy students is a high priority, we have implemented the following policies and consequences.
