Semester grades go to transcripts as a final grade. A transcript can tell a story. High School is about discovery! Have fun! General Tips (continued) Attendance is vital more than 10 unexcused absences is considered truant Be sure to send in doctors notes and parent notes (give to Ms. Adcock in front office)

Generally, excused absences are for sickness, a death in family, and doctors appointments (vacations are unexcused). Questions??
