We seek your support in spreading the word how Every Opportunity Starts with a YES. YES Prep goes beyond college-forward education and high academic standards.  YES Prep represents opportunities. Opportunities for a better future. Opportunities to feel empowered. Today and every day, say YES to the possibilities of tomorrow.

 

Your involvement is crucial in making these positive outcomes a reality. Whether it's sharing our message or connecting us with families interested in learning more about Southeast Secondary, your contribution can make a lasting impact.

 

If you're interested in helping us spread the word or know of a family eager to explore what Southeast Secondary has to offer, please get in touch with Jessica Villegas - jessica.villegas@yesprep.org

 

Together, let's pave the way for a future filled with opportunities!

 

Minor Student Arrival Adjustment

Beginning on March 25th, any student who arrives to campus after 8:25 AM will be directed to the front doors of the school to enter campus. This adjustment is being made to ensure that all students are entering the building with the proper dress code, student IDs, and tardy pass prior to heading to their first class of the day.

 

It is imperative that students arrive on time to avoid any disruptions to their morning routine. This change will ensure that students can enter their first class of the day with all necessary items and do not have to miss crucial learning time.

 

Attendance Update

It is imperative that students attend all school days. Each student's presence matters, not only for their academic progress but also for building connections and providing necessary support.

 

Students are marked absent for the day if they arrive at school after 10:00 AM. Daily student attendance is taken in all class periods.

 

Remember that students can enter the building as early as 8:00 AM and are considered tardy after 8:30 AM.

When your child is absent from school, your school’s front office will call home to find out why they missed school. When the student returns to school, they should turn in their excused note within 48 hours. The guardian can also complete an excuse note digitally in Skyward. The excuse note will then be added to the student’s file and your child must make up all missed assignments. Please note that if an excused absence is NOT turned in within 48 hours of the absence, the absence will remain unexcused. 

 

What is an excused absence? An excused absence is when a student provides physical or electronic documentation (a note from parent/legal guardian) within 48 hours of the absence. The following are possible reasons a student may receive an excused absence: Illness, bereavement / funeral (immediate family), school-sanctioned activities, family emergency, medical related, religious observances (not church camp), short-term suspension or other disciplinary actions, protected under state or federal law. 

 

What is an unexcused absence? Unexcused absences are when a child is absent without documentation signed by a guardian or doctor that meets the criteria for an excused absence.

Please help our students get to school every day, on-time, so that we can do our part to prepare them for success!
