Important Message from Administration

Message from Ed Barnes, assistant principal
Parents and Guardians of Apollo High School Students:

This letter is to inform you of a few attendance issues as we continue through the 2009 school year.

Absences: Unexcused and Excused
Students who are absent and do not have parent excusal will be marked as “Unexcused” and will receive a 3 hour detention the following day. 

If your student is absent or has missed one or more classes, please contact the attendance office within 24 hours to excuse the absence so your student can avoid this consequence

Once students have reached 13 excused or unexcused absences, they are subject to a loss of credit and could be removed from the class.

Non-Check-Out Violations
Students who leave campus without permission create many safety and legal concerns for both the parents and the school. Students who leave campus before the end of their school day, without permission will receive a 1 day off campus suspensionIf your student must leave campus early, please contact Apollo High School and have the student check-out through the attendance office.

Students who are swept and do not arrive to the sweeps room within 10 minutes receive an after school detention. We are continuing with the consequences for multiple sweeps throughout the day and semester.

The belief at Apollo High School is that success begins with attendance. We have informed the students of these consequences and your help with this matter is greatly appreciated.

Please contact the attendance office at   (623) 435-6301   if your student is going to miss one or more classes. If you are calling after hours, please leave a message with your name, the name of your student and the days and times you are excusing.

Thank you,

Ed Barnes
Assistant Principal
Apollo High School
