ATTENDANCE - It is very important that students are attending classes for which they are registered. If a student is sitting in your class but is not on your roster, please ask to see their schedule.

This is especially important for seniors who are enrolled in classes that they need credits for but are not attending, putting their graduation in doubt. Thanks for being AWESOME!
