Report Your Child Absent from School
If your child is going to be absent from school, you may click here to send an email to Ms. Margie. You may also call the front office at 505-983-7353 to report the absence. 
 
Attendance Policy
Students who are absent for more than two periods during the day may not participate in school events, practices, or games on that same day or evening without the express permission of the principal or dean of students.
 
Example Answer
A student is 30 minutes late for 2nd period because of a dentist appointment, and missed all of 1st period. Is that student eligible to leave at 2:30 for an away basketball game that night? Yes, the student was not absent for more than two periods because they were in partial attendance for second period and did not miss any other classes during the day. They may participate in their evening game.
A student is absent for periods 1, 2, and 3, and the student’s mother calls the front office to excuse the absence. Can the student play in the evening football game out of town?  No, the student cannot participate because the student missed more than two classes during the day, which were unrelated to school activities, unless the appointment is related to a funeral, doctor’s appointment, or family emergency at the discretion of the principal or assistant principal.
A student is on a school-sponsored field trip, off campus, for 3rd, 4th, and 5th periods. Can the student participate in their 4 PM volleyball game even though they missed more than two classes? Yes, the student can participate because the student was involved with another school-sponsored academic activity, which is equivalent to being “in class.”

Moral and Ethical Rigor
School is about learning, and much of the “rigor” that St. Michael’s prides itself on doesn’t come from a textbook, it comes from teaching the heart, not just the head.  It’s about moral and ethical rigor as well.  For that reason, we place special emphasis on teaching students about the dangers of academic dishonesty.
 
Academic dishonesty is a violation of both the St. Michael’s High School Honor Code and the virtue of justice. Academic dishonesty is a very serious offense that destroys the self-confidence of the individual involved and undermines the relationship of the student with teachers and peers. Academic dishonesty may include but is not limited to copying or giving an assignment to someone else to be copied (for example, a student’s homework, test answers, or information from the internet or research materials); submitting another’s work under one’s own name; giving or receiving information during a test or examination; using cheat sheets, notes, or unauthorized electronic aids; or engaging in any activity which may be construed as receiving or providing an unfair advantage. Students must not share their work with other students unless specifically directed to do so by the teacher. This policy is to be adhered to with on campus learning and virtual learning.

The classroom teacher shall assess any situation involving academic dishonesty and impose the consequences described below.

As soon as possible following any incident of academic dishonesty, the teacher will report the incident to the assistant principal through the use of a disciplinary referral notice. The assistant principal will then impose the proper disciplinary actions based on the number of offenses for the individual student.  
 
Although punishment is a natural consequence of academic dishonesty, we are primarily interested in helping students to understand the importance of honesty and personal integrity.
