LOWELL HIGH SCHOOL
|It is expected that Lowell students will attend school regularly. It has been our experience that more than five days of absence for any reason in an eighteen-week semester results in poor grades.
Re-admit Slip – if a student is absent, the parent or guardian should call the Attendance Office at 415-759-2730 ext. 3167. The student’s name and registry number should be given. When the student returns to school, s/he must bring a note signed by the parent or guardian to room 131 – the Attendance Office (Ms. Lee) in order to obtain a “Re-admit” slip. Re-admit slips are issued daily between 7:15 and 10:30 A.M. (Think early! Don’t be late for Registry!) No Permits-to-Leave school will be issued during registry. Between 9:40-10:30 AM after Registry, Re-Admits and PTL’s will be issued by Ms. Schmidt in room 104. A student must secure the signatures from all his/her teachers and return the Re-admit slip to the Dean within THREE DAYS of the absence.
Permit-To-Leave Slip (PTL for App’t) – if a student needs to leave early/during the day due to a DR./DDS appointment/other (not illness), s/he needs to bring a signed parent note to the Attendance Office or to Ms. Schmidt according to the times listed in the Re-admit section. Students must have the PTL signed by the parent/guardian and returned the following morning.
Permit-To-Leave Slip (PTL for Illness) – if a student becomes ill during the day, s/he should go to RM. 129 (Nurse Rainey), RM. 104 (Ms. Schmidt), or the Dean’s Office in Rm. 127 (Dean Cordoba) any time during the day. The parent/guardian will be notified and a PTL will be issued to the student. The student must have the parent sign the
PTL, attach a note regarding the illness, and return the PTL for a Re-admit slip as per the Re-admit section.
Tardy to School/Cutting Classes: Any loss of school time as the same effect- a loss of educational opportunity. The dean will assign penalties.
Thank you for your cooperation!
