As part of the District's acceleration of efforts around student attendance, Ms. Vivian Ekchian, our Acting Superintendent, has prepared a letter to all families urging every student to be present at school through the end of this week, and to return on Monday, January 8. Copies of this letter were distributed to all students on Thursday, December 14, 2017. Historically, attendance has been lower on the days immediately surrounding winter break. We want to reverse this trend to ensure that learning continues throughout the school year.

For the Week of 12.11.2017: This week’s Spartan Scholar of the Week is Joshua Giron, a 12th grader in our Leadership, Arts and Media Academy. Josh will be graduating this coming spring as an honors scholar-athlete. He is enrolled in three AP and Honors courses this fall, all while being a leader on the court as a basketball and volleyball team member. As his fellow teammates look up to him to bring home victories, Josh has shown how hard work leads to success on and off the court, academically and athletically. Josh is the school’s go to vocalist, participating in choir and other performances. Josh has a winning personality and has shown how dedication can lead to prosperity in life. As a Spartan, Josh is a fine example of resilience. For this honor, our scholar's name and photo will be placed on the marquee and on the home page of our web site all week. In addition, our scholar has received a special Spartan Scholar Medallion, a Sylmar limited edition tumbler, a delicious macrobar, and a free meal from Marie Callender’s Bakery.

At Sylmar Charter High School, attendance matters! We are learners today, so that we can be leaders tomorrow! We expect all students to be present at school at least 96% of the time, which translates to no more than seven absences for the entire school year! We understand that there may be times when students will need to be absent from school. Please read our attendance policy below for more information on our attendance systems.
All Class of 2018 seniors, as a condition for participating in Senior Activities and the Graduation Ceremony, must have a record of good school attendance during their senior year. Good school attendance will be determined by the guidelines established in our Senior Attendance Incentive Program and will affect participation in the ceremony and senior activities. The Senior Attendance Incentive Program begins on the first day of school, August 15, 2017, or the first day the student enrolled into our school. All absences, both excused and unexcused, from that day forward until the end of the school year will be counted for the Senior Attendance Incentive Plan. Please click on the link for the details!
