Punctuality and regular attendance by all students is encouraged for these reasons:
Occasionally parents may decide that certain experiences or family needs may warrant students' absences from class. Our policy was made to be a family-oriented policy and its intent is to allow families to spend time together if desired. This is not a student personal day policy; we do not have such a policy.
The school year has only 180 days in which to educate, we strongly discourage parents from taking their students out of class. Please attempt to use regular school vacation times first.
Parent Requested Absences (PRA) are limited to a maximum of three days per school year. For any additional days taken following these three, policy is that only major tests may be taken' assignments, quizzes and labs will be given a 0. Any request for additional PRA absences because of very special extenuating circumstances should be made in writing at least a month in advance to allow the Education Committee to rule on them.
The following procedures apply to PRA's:

SCHS students and parents expect a learning environment that reflects a basic Christian lifestyle. Faculty, staff, the board, and students themselves create and encourage such an environment. Students need to know how their behavior affects those around them.
SCHS staff and board intend and pray that any disciplinary action which results from inappropriate behavior will help students better contribute to a Christian learning and growing environment. To help track behavior that detracts from that learning environment, a point system was established. A summary of the point policy system is included in the Student Handbook.
