If you have been absent from any class more than 4 times during the previous semester, you will be denied a TEA/VOE form. If you desire a permit or a license, you must attend school.
Students may sign up for the TEA form in the black notebook located on the counter; right hand side of the main office. When school is in session, students should allow a minimum of 2 working days for the form to be completed. When the student's name is highlighted the form is ready for pick up in the front office.

Click here to read the Tardy Policy information
Teaching students to learn that being punctual is a requirement in most occupations is an important part of teaching the “whole” student. That social part of their learning can be just as valuable to them as anything else that they learn. For that reason, our tardy policy is something that must be supported and adhered to.
A student is considered tardy to class if he/she is outside of the classroom without a hall pass when the tardy bell rings. Teachers follow the guidelines to ensure that all Stony Point High School students have the same requirements for attendance.
Teachers should be standing at their door during the passing period and should encourage students to move into class prior to the tardy bell. Once the tardy bell rings, students entering afterwards will be counted tardy on attendance by the teacher.
-Students will need to have their school ID and class schedule to be able to checkout their textbooks.
-All financial obligations should be taken care of before school starts.
-Students need to write their names in front of all their textbooks and cover them. -Any problems or questions regarding damage that have not already been noted must be addressed in the textbook room within 2 weeks of checking out the book(s).
