GC students learning in class


Regular attendance is extremely important to the academic success of the student. Excessive absenteeism or tardiness may result in disciplinary consequences up to and including dismissal from the school or non-renewal for future academic years at the sole discretion of the school. 

Absences and tardies are noted on the student's permanent record. Classes begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. The end of the school day is at 3:20 p.m.

When reporting student attendance, please use the attendance form located in the Veracross portal, in lieu of calling the Attendance Office. All absences, early releases, etc. should be recorded by 8:30am.

Reminder: When students are absent for three or more days, parents should notify their child’s counselor for assistance in communicating with teachers and coordinating makeup work.

Please refer to the Student Handbook (page 16) in Veracross for more information regarding attendance protocols.
