Zero period classes are a privilege, not a right.  Poor attendance and excessive tardiness are problems particularly identified with zero period classes.  Students with more than 8 absences in the current semester or more than 5 tardies (in any class) in the current semester are not eligible to enroll in a zero period for next year.  Students who are enrolled in a zero period next year will have their attendance closely monitored.  If attendance falls below the above standard, the zero period class will be dropped and rescheduled during the regular school day.  Students must leave campus at the end of their school day and return after 6th period for extra-curricular activities.
