School Policies & Handbooks

Forms and Resources

Attendance

Resurrection College Prep maintains academic rigor through the physical presence of students in the classroom. Instructional time is the foundation of the educational program. Failure to attend school means lost opportunities to learn.

Resurrection College Prep expects students to be in attendance for all classes each school day. All aspects of the school day, such as Masses, prayer services, retreats, and all-school assemblies are important and are considered part of the educational program. A cooperative effort by the student, parent/guardian, and school personnel ensures that a student maintains regular attendance.

The State of Illinois considers a student excessively absent when absences exceed 5% of the school year. Resurrection College Prep records period by period attendance and considers a student excessively absent when she exceeds 5 absences in any class per semester.

Read details about excused and unexcused absences, make-up work, attendance at Masses, retreats, and special events, multiple absences, the impact on extra-curricular activities, and return to school information in the current Student Handbook.
