Absences and tardies, no matter the reason (sick, appointments, late bus or ride), will impact your opportunity to earn credits. If you have anything on your attendance record other than a "P" (for present), it will count towards a loss of credit. There are 6 grading periods in a school year. The following chart is an example of how absences can affect credits earned.
