Student Attendance Policy
The Provo City School District Board of Education recognizes the importance of regular student attendance to a successful learning experience. Research supports the fact that attendance is crucial to improving student achievement. The Board further recognizes that:
- All students are expected to be in class and on-time every school day, in every class. Provo School District will follow state law and federal guidelines as they pertain to attendance.
- Frequent absences and or tardiness of students from regular classroom learning experiences disrupt the continuity of the instructional process. The benefits of classroom instruction, once lost, cannot be entirely regained.
- The entire process of education requires a regular continuity of instruction, classroom participation, learning experiences, and study in order to meet student achievement goals.
- Holding students and their parents/guardians responsible for attendance is part of the District’s larger mission to train students to be productive citizens who are college and career ready.

School nurses have outlined the following reasons a child should be kept home:
- Fever is the body’s way of destroying the germs making it sick, and it’s a common symptom of infections such as flu. Keep your children home if their temperature is 101° F or higher. Wait until children are fever-free before letting them return to school.
- Diarrhea is often the result of infection, food poisoning, or a side effect to medications like antibiotics. Keep children home until stools are formed and your doctor gives the okay. Make sure your sick child stays well hydrated.
- Vomiting is another way for the body to rid itself of the germs making it sick, and is usually caused by a stomach virus or stomach infection. Keep children home if they’ve vomited twice or more in the last 24 hours. They can return to school after symptoms clear up or your doctor says they’re no longer contagious.
- Severe cough and cold symptoms should keep kids home from school. A serious cough could be a sign of contagious conditions like whooping cough, viral bronchitis, or croup. It can also be a sign of asthma or allergies.
- Sore throats can be a symptom of strep or a common cold. If your child has been diagnosed with strep throat, keep your child at home for at least 24 hours after starting antibiotics. If your child has a mild cold, it’s okay to go to school.
- Pinkeye (conjunctivitis) is contagious, and children should stay home from school for the first 24 hours after treatment begins. Symptoms of pinkeye include eye redness, irritation, swelling, and pus.
- Headaches can be a symptom of contagious conditions like viral gastroenteritis, flu, meningitis, and strep throat. Opinions differ on whether a child should be kept home. If your child doesn’t have any other signs of illness, and feels okay, your child can go to school.
- Rashes can be the sign of contagious conditions such as chickenpox, bacterial meningitis, or impetigo. Children should be kept home until they’re diagnosed. They can return to school after symptoms are gone and their doctor gives the okay.
Reasons a student should NOT be kept home:
- Earaches aren’t contagious. There’s no need to keep a child with a mild earache home, as long as your child feels well enough to concentrate.
- Mild cold or respiratory symptoms are no reason to keep children at home so long as their nasal drainage is clear and their cough is mild.
- Come on time
- Ready to Learn
- Bring appropriate supplies/homework
Be A Self Advocate
- Ask for help when needed
- Be self-directed when possible
Be A Team Player
- Participate/Be involved
- Do your best!
- Help others
- Make a positive contribution
Dream Big and then Expect Success!
Independence High is committed to providing a safe learning environment.
Regulating the persons who come onto Independence High’s campus is a necessary step to providing such an environment.
- The fence to the South, the ridgeline to the East and North, and Independence Avenue to the West bind Independence High School grounds. Until 3:30 P.M., Reams Wilderness Park is considered a part of Independence High by both the city and the school.
- Visitors are welcome at Independence High, but must check in at the front office. Persons who do not check in, who do not have permission to enter the school grounds, who do not leave when asked, or who have been suspended, are guilty of trespassing and will be prosecuted.
- Once a student arrives on the school grounds, whether or not the school day or the student’s classes have begun, the student must immediately enter the building and remain there until the school day is over.
- During lunch, at the discretion of the principal, the pavilion may be used as a commons area.
- During the school day, students must remain in the building. The parking lot areas and the Reams Wilderness Park are off limits.
- Students whose guardians check them out of school, or students who receive express permission from an administrator, may leave the building.
- Students who check out during the school day may not return to school that day unless the excuse was for court, doctor or dentist appointment, or for a verified family or personal emergency.

Personal Attire has the potential to create a disruptive or even intimidating environment. Independence High and a committee of parents have developed a Dress Code to help minimize disruption and intimidation created by such attire or any college or professional sportswear.
- Students may not wear clothes or jewelry that depict, represent or promote the use of illegal drugs, alcohol, or tobacco.
- Students may not wear clothes with pictures or words which are profane, vulgar, or sexual in nature, or which represent suicide, violence or death.
- Shoes must be worn at all times.
- Students may not wear attire that is associated with a “gang” look. This includes hats with “tagger” names, sagging pants (oversized pants—do not stay up above the hips without a belt or which have underwear showing above the beltline), bandanas or athletic sport jerseys, or any sports items from professional or college teams.
Independence students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects self-control and concern for others. A student who is unable to control his/her behavior in school will be referred to the office. As per the law, students are expected to follow any instructions, rules, or directives directed from any school official to include teachers, administrators, counselors, custodial, secretaries, lunch workers, and trackers.
General guidelines for conduct and discipline are contained in the Provo School District Policies and Procedures for Students handbook. Students not conforming to school rules will be referred for disciplinary action either at the school or district level. Serious acts of misconduct should be immediately reported to the School Resource Officer.
Prohibition of Bullying, Harassment, Hazing and Retaliation Policy
Purpose and Philosophy
The Board of Education is committed to provide all students and District employees with a safe and secure learning and working environment. Bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, and retaliation for reporting such incidents reduce a student’s ability to achieve academically and reduces an employee’s ability to perform their job responsibilities. In addition bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing and retaliation can directly affect a student’s or an employee’s health and well-being, and may contribute to excessive absences, physical illness, mental and emotional anguish and long-term social and psychological consequences. The Board directs the superintendent to develop procedures to stop and prevent bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing and retaliation.
“Bullying” means intentionally or knowingly committing an act that endangers the physical health, safety or emotional welfare of a student or employee for the purpose of creating fear of harm to the student or employee or harm to the property of the student or employee. Typically, bullying is behavior that is intended to cause personal harm or distress, exists in a situation or relationship in which there is an imbalance of power or strength, and may be repeated over time.

No student or employee may make a false allegation of bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation against a student or employee.
A student target of bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation should inform his/her teacher or any of his/her school’s administrators. An employee target of bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation should inform his/her supervisor. A parent, teacher, or any other individual who is aware of bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation at school should inform school administration.

The principal/supervisor or designee, to whom a complaint of bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation is reported shall promptly investigate the complaint. All acts of bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation that constitute criminal activity will be promptly reported to law enforcement. Any bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation that is found to be targeted at an individual because of his/her race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, sexual orientation including gender expression or identity and/or any other classification protected by law is further prohibited under federal anti-discrimination laws and is subject to compliance procedures from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights. To the extent permitted by federal and state law, District policies, and confidentiality and privacy rights, and to assure the integrity of the investigation and corrective action, the parents or legal guardians of a student perpetrator or target may be involved in the process of responding to and resolving conduct prohibited by this policy.
Pursuant to Utah Code Ann., Section 53A-11a-203, each school administrator who finds that an incident of bullying, cyber-bullying, harassment, hazing, or retaliation has occurred shall notify the parent/guardian of each student involved. Likewise, each school administrator shall notify the parent/guardian of any student who threatens to commit suicide. The school administrator who notifies a parent/guardian under this section shall keep a record verifying that the parent/guardian was notified using the Parent/Guardian Notification Record of Student Bullying Incident or Suicide Threat form. This form shall contain the date, time manner of notification, and indicate the type of threat or incident. This form, along with any related written communication, must be kept separate from the student’s educational records. The form may be disclosed to the parent/guardian and/or student, but it may not be disclosed to any other person or entity except when required by a valid court order as provided in Utah Code Ann., Section 63G-2-202(7). The form prepared pursuant to this section is categorized as a “private record” as per Utah Code Ann., Section 63G-2-3-2 under the Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) (Utah Code Ann., Section 63G-2-101, et seq.).

Disciplinary action may include, but is not limited to, suspension; expulsion; exclusion from, or loss of participation in, extracurricular activities; dissolution of a team, organization, or other group; probation; alternate educational placement; and/or referral to law enforcement authorities for criminal acts. In imposing such discipline, all facts and circumstances of the incident(s) shall be taken into account.
