Welcome to the CGUHS Attendance Department
Office Hours: 7:00AM - 3:00PM
Absence Line: (520) 836-8500 ext. 3130
There are no parent excused tardies. Parents may NOT call the Attendance Office to excuse a tardy. Students arriving late to school should go directly to attendance to get a pass to class. Since instructional time is priority importance, it is necessary that students be in class and prepared for the lesson to begin when the tardy bell rings. Students are expected to be in their classes when the last bell rings. Students who are late to class will be swept into ISS for the class period.

Students who are absent (unexcused) for more than 9 instructional days, during a given semester class, will lose credit in that class. On the 10th absence the computer will replace the grade with an “NC” for No Credit. Once a student has lost credit in a class, he or she must still attend that class. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action.

Documented absences, school related absences, homebound, ISS and OSS DO NOT count against a student’s attendance record. It is recommended that appointments be scheduled outside the regular school day.
Excused Absences include:

  • Court Documents
  • Detention Documents
  • Funeral Notice for Bereavement
  • Immigration appointment
  • Medical and Dental Notes

It is recommended that appointments be scheduled outside the regular school day.

Unexcused Absences include:
  • Parent/guardian call in

Documentation must be provided within 48 hours of a student’s return to class, Parents are still required to call the school or provide notes to explain absences. Parental note and/or phone call does not necessarily excuse an absence. Such absences WILL be counted against the student’s attendance record.
10 Absences per class period = NO CREDIT in that class!
