Notice to Parents/Guardians and Students
Hafa Adai! Parents/Guardians and Students! In our ongoing effort to address tardies and/or unexcused absences due to the increase number of students arriving late, you are highly advised to have your child dropped off at JFKHS campus before 6:45 A.M. The first bell rings at 6:55 A.M. and first block begins at 7:00 A.M. Your child must be in his/her class before tardy bell rings. If a student gets to class fifteen minutes or more after the bell rings, the absence is unexcused.
If your child is found to have excessive tardies and/or absences, a mandatory parent conference will be issued and may even result to “NC” per Board Policy 411. The Department of Education provides bus services. If you chose not to utilize this service, then it is your responsibility to have your child on campus on time. We ask your full support and cooperation in teaching our students to be responsible and primed high achievers by being on time.
Be reminded that Lock-outs for all periods have been in effect, which means that once the tardy bell rings, the teachers will be securing their doors. All tardy students will be directed to Dr. Manaloto’s Office.
Greatly appreciate your assistance,
Dr. Teresita P. Manaloto, Ed.D., Assistant Principal
