Attendance - ASL

ASL Header
ASL is an opportunity for students to make up absences
that exceed the 5 allowed and have not been waived*.

ASL hours are after school on Tuesdays from 3:15 - 5:15 p.m.
(additional days may be announced)
Please see below for dates.

Any student attending ASL must sign-up and pay in the Counseling Office
no later than 1:30 on the afternoon prior to the planned Attendance Study Lab.
Cost is $5.00 per session.
2 Hours of ASL = 2 Class Periods.

Students are encouraged to make up missed attendance time during the current semester,
to avoid noncredit with a grade of FF.
Accumulated absences can be made up for courses where a student
received a final grade of FF at any time prior to graduation,
but may result in non-promotion if not made up in the current semester.

It is the student’s responsibility to check their attendance before attending ASL.
ASL hours will ONLY be applied to classes where students have
exceeded 5 absences that have not been waived*. Students may
not ‘bank’ or pre-make up attendance time during ASL sessions.

Attendance Study Lab is a privilege…students are expected to behave in an appropriate manner.
All NBHS school rules for conduct are in effect in addition to the following after school rules.
Disruption or failure to work will be grounds for dismissal without reimbursement and no credit given.

*see 3.6 in the Student Handbook on for information regarding WAIVED DAYS

To have absences considered for waiver by the NBHS Attendance Committee, this form (click the link) must be completed as instructed and submitted in the office for review.

The committee meets the First and Third Monday of the month.  For the waiver to be reviewed, it must be turned in by noon the day of the meeting. 

Once the committee reviews the waiver, the student is called to the front office to pick up a copy for documentation.

If the waiver is approved, notice is sent to teachers for documentation.  If the waiver is denied, notice is given to the student as to the reason and if more documentation is needed.

Please note that all excused absences are NOT waived. Documentation for waivers must support criteria for days to be waived.
