Attendance Policy

Students are expected to attend school every day. CPHS is a partner with parents to help develop student work ethic and career skills. If a student must be absent, it is the parent’s responsibility to notify the school on the day of the absence. Parents are required to notify the school attendance office of each student’s absence prior to 9:00 a.m. on the day of the absence.   For your convenience calls or emails can be received 24 hours a day.  A student absence not verified within 48 hours by a parent may become a truancy.
