Attendance Committee

It is important that students and parents recognize the direct relationship that exists between academic achievement and school attendance. Attendance is ultimately the responsibility of the student and his/her parent or guardian. Students should strive to attend school each day and minimize time out of school. The benefit of lectures, discussions, demonstrations, interactivities, note taking, and explanations/clarifications is impossible to attain if one is absent. DHS encourages regular school attendance.
