Attendance

     If you miss a day, you miss a lot! Regular attendance is critical to your success at Knights Academy. We have committed ourselves to an active learning approach to instruction; therefore, it is critical that you are present each day for discussions, labs, field trips, etc.

ABSENCES

     An excused absence is considered something that is beyond a student’s control. Illness is considered an excused absence only if a parent calls the Knights Academy office at (763) 497-6575 on the day of the absence to verify. Excessive absences due to illness may require a doctor’s verification. Knights Academy reserves the right to determine whether absences are excused or unexcused. We encourage you to make appointments outside the school day, but in the event that you need to make an appointment during the school day, we ask that you bring a note from the doctor's office, dental office, etc.

Three unexcused absences in a class will result in your class credit being cut in half. For example, if you have 3 unexcused absences in a .50 credit class, you will earn .25 credit rather than .50 credit. Three tardies equals 1 absence.

TARDIES

     Please be on time to class. Three tardies equals 1 absence.

SIGN IN PROCEDURE

     Students must sign in when they arrive at school and indicate whether they want hot lunch or not.

ABSENCE LINE : (763) 497-6575

     Students are expected to verify all absences with the office paraprofessional, Lori Leathers. Parents must contact Knights Academy the day of the absence. An absence will be considered unexcused until it is verified by a parent. Please schedule appointments outside the school day.
