Chicopee Comprehensive High School
CCHS Attendance & Attendance Policy
Reminder to Parents & Guardians:
When your student is going to be absent or tardy, please call the Attendance Office at 413-594- 3534 to report the absence.
Teens who attend school regularly have stronger bonds to their school and are more likely to graduate. Good attendance also creates a habit that can carry over into work later. Consider these tips:
- Set Expectations. Being out for even a day or two a month can hurt your child’s performance. Tell him/her that the only acceptable excuses are illness, family emergencies, or college visit.
- Discuss results. Point out that missing school means he/she will have to make up course work.
- Keep in contact. Write notes or call the Attendance Department to notify the school that your child is not skipping. If he/she does skip, contact the school so you can create a plan to get him/her back on track.
