Attendance During Distance Learning:

(See Google Doc instead, click here)


  • Attendance is taken from live class attendance/ participation.   This means students must log in and join video sessions Mon.- Th. to be counted as present.  (Refer to AB77 for more information.)
  • Fridays Teachers may use different means to take attendance:  live class, work, google forms/ surveys, or office hours.   It is the student’s responsibility to pay attention to the posted bell schedule and read messages from their teachers about Friday check ins.
  • What if I have tech  issues and cannot join class?
    • Contact your teacher immediately – don’t wait until the end of the day. 
    • Take a screenshot as proof you had an issue to send to your teacher. 
  • It is the responsibility of each student to read all Jupiter messages and check their student email at least once a day.
  • It is the responsibility of each student to log into their online classes to check announcements and work due each day.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to know the BVH bell schedule
  1. How do I excuse an absence?
