The Board acknowledges the importance of regular attendance in an effective instructional programs. As a “school of choice”, enrollment at Hudson County Schools of Technology is a privilege that is maintained through regular attendance and application of effort.

In order for the Board to fulfill its responsibility for providing a thorough and efficient education for each student, the complete cooperation of parents/guardians and pupils is required to maintain a high level of school attendance.

Attendance procedures can be made more effective and student security can be enhanced by involving parents in prompt reporting of an absence. All parents/guardians are responsible for notifying the school early in the day when a student will be absent and for informing the school of the reason for the absence. (When leaving a message please speak clearly and spell the student’s name).

In addition, all students are required to bring a note from the parent/guardian upon returning to school. The

student is required to submit the note to Mrs. Salgado who will direct the student to the “next step.”

Students are expected to attend all classes on time every day.

Students will be limited to 16 absences per year (pro rata for marking period and semester length courses).

Students who exceed the maximum number of absences may lose credit for the course.


All work missed because of absence is to be made up as soon as possible. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with the teacher, identify all missing assignments and to establish due dates.
