Student Attendance Policies

GBS requires students to attend school daily and on-time. Parental support is essential in the matter of attendance. There is a positive correlation between school attendance and good academic achievement. The activities of the classroom, including student discussion, participation, teacher lectures, and comments are of vital importance and cannot ever be adequately made up by a student.

Daily attendance equates directly to the attainment of educational goals. Also, parents have a legal responsibility to see that their student attends school regularly. Please read the following attendance guidelines carefully.
