Attendance Procedures for Students
We advise students to turn in all absence notes to the attendance office during non-instructional time. If the student has three consecutive absences from class, the appropriate counselor and an administrator will be notified.
Last Check Out for Students is at 1:20 pm.
Unexcused Absences / Late Arrivals For Students
Absences and late arrivals are unexcused for all other reasons, including, but not limited to:
- Missing the bus, oversleeping, power outage
- Vacations, trips, family visits
- Car trouble, babysitting, running errands, and traffic congestion
A student will be considered as having an unexcused absence or check-in unless a valid note is provided.
For additional information, please see pages 4-5 of the following document: GCPS 2019-2020 Student/Parent Handbook
McClure Health Science High School is the premier Health Science High School experience in Georgia. In an effort to maintain this standard, we encourage students to present themselves in a way that promotes professionalism in dress. The following guidelines were created to help inform decisions when deciding what to wear to school.
At McClure Health Science High School, the clothing that is selected to wear should not diminish our daily academic focus. Our core business of teaching and learning is disrupted when a student has to be referred to an administrator for dress that does not promote professionalism. If a student is dressed in a style that does not promote professionalism based on the discretion of a school administrator, the student will be asked to correct the situation. Failure to comply will result in a discipline consequence.
Medical scrubs and medical uniforms are permitted on a daily basis. Students are encouraged to purchase these items from the school store.
Official McClure Health Science lanyards must be worn at all times.
Clothing that does NOT promote an image of professionalism is an outfit that…
· Shows cleavage
· Shows midriff
· Shows bottoms/ upper thighs
· Shows undergarments
· Includes head covering (hats, doo rags, headbands that cover the full head, etc.)
· Includes inappropriate pictures/texts
Clothing that DOES promote an image of professionalism is an outfit that…
· Covers your chest
· Covers your stomach
· Covers your bottom/ upper thighs
· Covers your undergarments
· Has appropriate content on shirts
· Uncovers your head unless for religious purposes
