ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES 

On the day/period of the absence: If a student is absent from school, a parent or guardian should call the Attendance Office (949/936-7001) before noon to report the absence. (This message line is available 24 hours a day for your use).  The student has 3 days to clear the absence, after that, the student will be deemed truant.  If a student is unexcused from class, missed work and tests may not be made up.  Students that are habitually truant (Ed Code 48260) will be asked to verify all illnesses by providing a doctor’s note or by being cleared through the school’s health office.  Persistent attendance infractions will result in detentions, assignment to Saturday School, and referral to the district’s SARB board. 

Our Automated Caller has been designed to contact a parent each day their student misses or is tardy to a class. 

If a student is truant from class, missed work and tests may not be made-up. 

Families can check their student’s attendance on the parent portal.  Below is a list of codes that are used for absences and tardies.  Only those with a * next to them are considered excused per Education Code.   

  • A:  Unexcused Absence 
  • B:  School Business
  • D:  Medical Appointment
  • F:  Funeral*
  • I:   Illness*
  • O:  Court* 
  • R:  Religious Holiday*
  • S:  Suspension 
  • U:  Family Business
  • T:  Tardy 
  • X:  Tardy over 30 minutes

State regulations require that all absences be cleared through the Attendance Office by parents or legal guardians ONLY. Either call (949) 936-7001 on the day of the absence or send a note within 3 days of the absence. You can call the attendance line 24 hours a day. All notes have to be written in ink and signed by parent or guardian.

The note or the phone call must contain:

  • Student # (not the permanent ID #)
  • Last name (spell it if you are calling)
  • First name
  • Periods missed including TA (not the classes, but the periods)
  • Reason for the absence

PLEASE NOTE: We make every attempt to minimize the amount of classroom disruptions by not pulling students out of class for personal appointments. Please make all arrangements with your students for them to leave during breaks or lunch. Students can bring a note to the attendance window before the class stating the time they need to leave and what periods they will miss.

 

If your student comes to the attendance window and does not have a note and there has not been a phone call, they will be issued and "unexcused" re-admit. This is NOT a detention at this time. They have 2 days to clear the absence and after that it will become a detention and cannot be cleared.

 

 In case of an accident or injury, students will be released through the Health Office and will ONLY be released to their parent/legal guardian or designated person on the student’s records.  

Tardy Policy

Definition of a Tardy: Any student that arrives after the start of the period will be considered tardy. Any student tardy more than 30 minutes will be considered absent. (31+). The following actions & consequences will be issued to any student who is tardy:

  • 1st Tardy: Verbal Warning & Review of Expectations
  • 2nd Tardy: Verbal Warning & Review of Expectations
  • 3rd Tardy: Verbal Warning & Parent Notification via school messenger

Campus Policies: Open Campus 

Students may leave campus during lunch only with a Lunch Pass on file.  Adherence to this policy will be monitored by staff spot checks, police, merchants, and community reports.  The campus is closed at all other times including break, tutorial, Advisement, rallies, assemblies and passing periods and students are to remain on campus. 

Computer & Network Access

All students who agree to the IHS and IUSD technology use policy will receive an account.  If violations of the use policy occur, students may lose access to computers and the IHS network. 

Disaster Preparedness

We ask that students not leave campus until their parent/guardian has signed them out with the Student Release Team, so that we have a record of each student’s whereabouts.  Parents should park at Heritage Park, walk through the park, and check in with the Student Release Team behind the practice gym.   

Lockers 

Lockers will be available to all 10th graders and 11th graders during Roundup.  During Roundup 10th and 11th grade students will be able to return their locker if they do not wish to have one and 9th and 12th grade students will be able to place their name on a list for the lottery.   Freshmen will not be automatically assigned a locker as we are moving towards the use of class sets of books at the freshmen level in most classes.  Students will be notif ied within the first month of school if they have been issued a locker.  Lockers cannot be shared.  Students who are issued lockers will have access to them only during the school day.  THE SCHOOL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOCKER THEFT, THE LOSS OF TEXTBOOKS OR PERSONAL ITEMS. 

Parking Permits

A drivers’ license, certificate of completion of the Smart Start Program, and completed parking permit application will be required to obtain a valid permit.  ANYONE PARKING ON IHS CAMPUS WITHOUT A VALID PERMIT MAY BE ISSUED A CITATION FROM THE IRVINE POLICE DEPARTMENT. Violators’ cars may be towed away at owner’s expense.  Any student parking in STAFF or VISITOR parking will be subject to ticketing and a sticker is placed on the student’s windshield.  First offense earns a Saturday School; second offense leads to loss of parking privilege. 

P.E. Lockers

PE Lockers are issued individually to each student through the P.E. Department.  The loss of items will not be reimbursed by the school.  Students are expected to lock up all belongings in their PE locker.  PE lockers can only be accessed during the student’s assigned PE period.

ACADEMIC HONESTY POLICY

Students are expected to demonstrate honesty and integrity while in attendance at IHS. Each student is expected to do his or her own work on individual assignments. This includes test taking, homework, class work, and the original creation of essays, compositions, term papers, and scientific research. A student who shares his/her work with another student, other than in a cooperative learning  situation, will be considered an accessory. All work submitted by a student should be a true reflection of his or her own effort and ability.  If submitted work is not, then the student has demonstrated unacceptable academic behavior. The following criteria are considered cheating: 

 

a.    claiming credit for work not the product of one’s own honest effort 
b.    providing unwarranted access to materials or information so that credit may be dishonestly claimed by others
c.    knowledge and tolerance of any of the above 

Any behavior, which can be defined as cheating, represents a violation of mutual trust and respect essential to education at IHS. Students who cheat should expect to be confronted by their teacher and be subject to the following penalties: 

 

1st Offense: Referred to assistant principal, Academic Honesty assignments to be completed within one week, zero on assignment, parent contact by teacher, and Saturday School. 

 

2nd Offense: Referred to assistant principal, , dropped from the class with an “F” unless the student completes an intervention (Academic Honesty assignments to be completed within one week) as assigned by the assistant principal, zero on assignment, parent contact by teacher, and Saturday School. 

 

3rd Offense: Referred to assistant principal, dropped from the class with an “F”.

 

MISSION STATEMENT: OUR MISSION IS TO ENABLE ALL STUDENTS TO BECOME CONTRIBUTING MEMBERS OF THE SOCIETY, EMPOWERED WITH THE SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE, AND VALUES NECESSARY TO MEET THE CHALLENGES OF A CHANGING WORLD, BY PROVIDING THE HIGHEST QUALITY EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE WE CAN ENVISION.

 

A responsible 21 st century citizen is one who demonstrates and values the importance of ethical behavior. At IHS, our learning community requires students to take responsibility for their own personal conduct in both social and academic endeavors. In this regard, students must attend IHS ready to learn and in their learning demonstrate the ability to use moral awareness, integrity and perseverance. Academic honesty requires that students produce work that is their own. Dishonesty undermines the learning process and subverts the trust essential in student-teacher relationships. Students who seek a dishonest advantage over their fellow students are pursuing a course that is destructive to themselves, to their peers, and to society.

 

Academic honesty in the classroom means that all students do their own work on assignments, homework, and examinations. The work completed by students is used to determine the grades given in courses. Unauthorized assistance from other students or student aides also is considered a violation of the Academic Honesty Policy.

 

It shall be the judgment and responsibility of teachers to determine whether an academic dishonesty violation has occurred. Students in violation of the policy will be subject to the following consequences:

 

EXAMPLES OF VIOLATIONS INCLUDE (but are not-limited to):

  1. A student looks on another student’s paper or talks during an examination.

All agencies involved in assisting students in substance abuse cases have agreed to cooperate and work together in assessing corrective measures to avoid unfair and/or duplicate punishments. The schools have agreed to release all controlled substances confiscated from students to the appropriate law enforcement agency.

This includes while leaving the library until the device is outside the library door, and entering the library once the device is inside the library door.

    In other words: AT NO TIME are cell phones to be on or visible in the library

    Homework Policy

    Homework Policy Homework at Irvine High School, whether assigned in the format of reading, skill development, vocabulary practice, or extension assignments, is designed to reinforce and review the concepts and content learned in the classroom, prepare or study for assessments, and introduce upcoming lessons. Students are expected to thoughtfully complete homework with the same diligence that they bring to their classwork each day. 

    SUPPORT AT SCHOOL 

    Homework assignments will be purposeful and differentiated to meet the needs of all students. Teachers will work with their curricular levels to determine the percentage to which homework will be factored into student grades. Departments will work to minimize overlap of major assignments in order to limit an excessive work load. Irvine High School provides a number of resources for students and parents: 

    • Tutorial Tuesdays and Thursdays within the school day 
    • After School Peer Tutoring Monday-Thursday from 3:30-4:30pm in The Life Center 
    • The IUSD Parent Portal Online https://my.iusd.org 
    • Additional resources may be obtained by your student’s individual teachers. 
    SUPPORT AT HOME 

    Parents and guardians are encouraged to consistently provide a supportive and distraction-free environment for students to work independently. Additionally, parents are encouraged to check homework for completion and quality. 

    ACADEMIC BREAKS 

    With the recognition that students need some time without academic homework assignments, homework will not be assigned specific to Thanksgiving break or Spring break. 

    Students should continue to utilize academic breaks to complete make-up work and optional extra credit assignments. 

    Honors courses are accelerated from the college prep courses and students enrolled in these classes will be expected to commit to and maintain a rigorous course load both in the classroom and outside of the classroom. With that understanding, Honors students may be expected to complete additional coursework, such as summer assignments. 

    Please note that Advanced Placement courses are considered optional and equivalent to college level courses. Advanced Placement teachers may use their discretion in issuing academic breaks that coincide with the preparation of the Advanced Placement exams. 

    SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES 

    Parents can find information regarding homework expectations and policies from individual teachers by attending Back-To-School Night and referencing Parent Portal, and/or Course Expectations/Syllabi. Concerns regarding specific homework policies should be brought to the attention of the teacher via email or telephone contact. 

    Before or immediately after an excused absence or suspension, it is the student’s responsibility to coordinate and make up any assignment or assessment with each teacher in an agreed upon timeframe. Students are accountable for the completion of long-term assignments on pre-assigned due dates regardless of absence.
