SACHS Chapel Attendance Policy
Attendance Office: 210-832-5600
What should I do if I know I am going to be late to Chapel?
Call the attendance office. Especially if there are extenuating circumstances. Parent must still follow up with an email or note to explain the tardiness before 10:00 A.M.
What are not acceptable excuses for missing Chapel?
- Traffic (Normal morning traffic)
- Weather (Raining)
- Personal Issues (Vague)
Why is Chapel Reflection assigned?
Chapel Reflection is assigning time for the student to make up their missed morning Chapel time. Chapel is an essential component of the student’s day because it is connected to our school’s Mission and Ministry.
Why do I receive emails regarding Chapel Unexcused?
An automated RenWeb email is sent when an absence or tardy is recorded by the student’s advisory teacher at 8:00 A.M. If the student is not in their assigned seat in Chapel by 8:00 A.M., they are marked with a Chapel Unexcused. The notifications are meant to notify you of the Chapel Unexcused marked in attendance as well as letting you know of the Chapel Reflection assigned after school.
Why was my child marked Chapel Unexcused when he/she was definitely present in Chapel?
This occurs when students who participate in a presentation or in music ministry without letting their advisor know.
How probable will my child’s lateness be excused and not result in Chapel Reflection?
The reason for lateness must be out of the ordinary and/or serious that being tardy could not be avoided. Details must be provided by parent in an email or note before 10:00 A.M. Generic reasons like “personal issues” will not be acceptable. Remember, Chapel is considered as important as any class at St. Anthony Catholic High School.
