MMHS Attendance Information
Students who have accrued over 10 hours of missed class time due to tardies, unexcused absences, or sluffs, are
not eligible to participate in any extracurricular school activities, athletics, or events until they have made up
their missed class time. In order to be eligible, students need to make-up time to be under 10 hours. Students
are responsible for monitoring their missed class time balance and serving the hours necessary to be eligible for
participation in school events. Students who are over 10 hours of missed class time receive a Non-Participation

Davis, and taken to their coach verifying they are eligible to participate. Please encourage your student to
recover their learning and make-up their missed class time through one of the following options:
