Volusia County Schools Uniform Policy Information - Effective for the 2016-2017 School Year

FAQ's

Q: What is the Tardy Policy at University High School?

A: The tardy policy has changed for the 2016-2017 school year. The consequences are the following:

1st Tardy - Verbal Warning to Student

2nd Tardy - Verbal Warning and Phone Call Home to Parent/Guardian

3rd Tardy - Referral to Office 

Every tardy after the 3rd Tardy will result in a Referral to the Office. Tardies will reset after each quarter. 

 

Q: What do I do if my student is absent?

A: Call the main office (386-983-0013) and follow the prompts to report the absence to the attendance office. They must also see Miss Giesenschlag during her office hours to receive make up work. It is the student's responsibility to find out about missing work. 

 

Q: If my student has been out with an illness, when can they return?

A: Miss Giesenschlag prefers your student to come back to school when they are totally healthy. This means that they are 24 hours fever-free (without medication), ready to work, and ready to give their best effort! 

Q: What is with Miss Giesenschlag's Responsibility Points?

A: Miss Giesenschlag uses Responsibility Points as your student's participation grade. Your student can receive up to 5 points every day for a total of 25 points over the course of a week. Please see the "Welcome Class Packet" file above for more information. 

 

Q: What is the best way to contact Miss Giesenschlag?

A: Miss Giesenschlag welcomes communication between home and school. The best way to contact her is through her e-mail ([email protected]). She promises to respond within 24 hours. If she cannot answer your question, it may be forwarded to another staff member. Miss Giesenschlag will let you know if this occurs.
