School Policies

Activities

Activities

Activities at Fremont High School are an important and integral part of the high school experience. They are designed to reach out to the high school student population and community as well.

Cards are required for home games, school dances and all other activities that students attend. The activity card is also required for school lunch and to check out a library book at Fremont High.

Assemblies

Assemblies at Fremont High School build unity within our school community and provide an opportunity for students to showcase excellence within our school. Advisors make every effort to ensure that assemblies are well-prepared, highly organized, and positive in nature. Students are encouraged to attend and are not permitted to leave campus during assemblies. The cafeteria is available for students not wishing to attend an assembly.

Attendance

Attendance Policy

Consistent attendance is important to a student’s educational success. Parents, we ask that you help in monitoring and encouraging consistent attendance of your child.

Parents must call the school within 3 days of any absence. Written excuses will not be accepted.  Please call the 24-hour voice mail line at 452-4001, state your child’s name, grade, reason for absence, and date of absence. If the absence is not for the full day, please indicate the time or class periods missed.

If a parent or guardian needs to reach the Attendance Office during school hours for reasons other than to excuse an absence, please leave a message on the voice mail line. The line is checked consistently throughout the school day and you will either receive a call back and/or your student will be contacted as per your request. Once again, state your student’s name, grade, your name, phone number, and a brief message. Please understand that because of the volume of phone calls and in-person assistance, attendance business during the school day is handled through the voice mail line. You will still receive immediate attention to your message and requests.

Parent excused absences are still considered one the allowed 5 absences per term. Special arrangements need to be made in the case of prolonged or prearranged absences. Students can receive a medically excused absence that does not count toward the allowed absences with a doctor/dentist note. Doctor’s notes should be dated and submitted within 3 days of the absence.  If a surgery or extended illness requires the student to miss multiple days, a Pre-Arranged Absence form can be obtained from the Attendance Office or a counselor can  determine if the student is eligible for Home and Hospital tutor
