Whittier High School

School Dances

In order to improve attendance for all students and stress the importance of good school attendance, students will be expected to maintain 95% attendance. The following guidelines will be followed:
 
1.) Students requesting to participate in a school activity must obtain an attendance
print out. The students attendance will be reviewed for dance clearance.
A student should not have more than a total of four (4)
unexcused tardies or period cuts (combined in all classes)
and no more than five (5) full day excused absences. Anything
over this criteria the student must attend a Saturday School for each
additional full day absence or 4 period cut/unexcused tardy combination.

2.) All-day truancies, unexcused absences and period cuts must be
clearded by Saturday School before getting cleared for any dance.

3.) All assigned Saturdays Schools must be served before the student can
purchase a dance ticket.
 
Note: One Saturday School clears one all day truancy, excused absence or unexcused absence or 4 period cuts/truancies or unexcused tardies.

**ACTIVITIES ARE SCHOOL SPONSORED AND WHS RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DENY PARTICIPATION TO ANY STUDENT.
