Tests without a name or version number

Students and families

To maintain the rigor of an A.P. course (a College Level class) tests without a name of version number will NOT be graded. You have been instructed at the begining of the test and were also told since November that this policy will be in place Spring semester. You are welcome to retake the test.


Handbook Essentials


The Federal No Child Left Behind Act requires that states, school districts and schools be held accountable for ensuring that all students meet high academic standards. On time, daily attendance is a critical component of this educational process. New Mexico law dictates that:

  • Students between the ages of five (5) and eighteen (18) years of age are mandated to attend public school, private school, home school, or a state institution.
  • The Albuquerque Public School District reports habitual truants to the Children's Court Liaison office and to the State of New Mexico.

Reporting Absences

Report Absences: Call (505) 843-6400 and speak to their grade level secretary

Notes or phone calls should include: 

  • Student name and ID number
  • Date/s of absence
  • Reason for absence
  • Parent signature
  • Parent phone number

Failure to report an absence within 48 hours upon return to school will result in an unexcused absence.

Student Absence

When a student returns to school after an absence, he or she must follow the following procedure:

  1. Student must bring a note from a parent or guardian that includes the date(s) of absence, reason for the absence, and the telephone number of parent or guardian.
  2. The note must be presented to the grade level secretary within 48 hours of the absence.
  3. The grade level secretary will mark the absence appropriately on SchoolMAX.

Make-Up Work

Students are entitled to make up work for all excused absences, including suspensions. The student is responsible for requesting make up assignments from their teachers and will have a period of time equal to the absence to complete the work. Teachers need 24 hours from the time of the request to compile assignments.

Excused & Unexcused Absences

Absences may be excused for the following reasons, with appropriate documentation: 

  • Doctor's appointment
  • Death in the family
  • Religious commitment
  • Illness
  • Family emergency
  • Diagnostic testing
  • School or college visit

Family vacations are considered unexcused absences, and it is expected that the parents will schedule vacations when school is not in session.

The parent/guardian must notify the school in writing or by calling their grade level secretary regarding absences within 48 hours or the absence will be counted as unexcused. These protocols are in accordance with the notification procedure established by the school.   

Parents will receive notifications of unexcused absences that are in keeping with New Mexico state law and Public Education Department regulations. School personnel will work with parents to design interventions to support students and families to improve attendance.

Excessive excused absences may result in further inquiry from the principal and request for additional documentation. Students who are signed out before the end of the instructional day, must have written documentation for their release (as defined under excused absences), or be subject to the consequence of a tardy. Students will NOT be released after 2:00 pm.  

Bulldog Absences

  • All field trips are considered extra-curricular.
  • Students must follow eligibility requirements and have a minimum 2.0 GPA and no more than 1 "F" in a grading period to participate in a field trip.
  • Eligibility is determined by previous 6-week report cards: not grade checks.
  • Students are limited to ten Bulldog Absences per semester. Additional absences require administrative approval.

Teacher Responsibility

Teachers take accurate attendance every class period and will submit referrals for excessive absences according to the set procedure. The AHS Classroom Attendance Referral is part of the APS District approved individual school attendance plan.

Every teacher will review and post school attendance policies. It is a teacher’s professional responsibility to notify parents regarding students’ progress and attendance through iCue (by entering attendance) and via the classroom attendance referral form. The AHS Bilingual Education Office is available for translation support.

Excessive Absences

Parents of habitual truants (a student who has accumulated the equivalent of ten or more unexcused absences within a school year) will receive notification from APS in accordance with the district attendance policy, as posted in the APS Student Behavior Handbook.

Tardy Policy

If a student arrives to class after the last bell, they are to report to In School Suspension room. If they report to In School Suspension room within ten-minutes, they will receive a pass to go to class. Students who arrive after the ten-minute time frame will be held in In School Suspension room for the remainder of the period. They are still entitled to their work and are responsible for requesting it. Due to the high frequency of students arriving late in the morning, students will be allowed to attend the first period of the day with a pass. They must arrive within the first twenty minutes of class with the pass.

Students who report to In School Suspension room after the first ten minutes of class will remain in In School Suspension room. Be mindful, it takes three minutes to get to class from the portables to the Science Building.

Tardy Consequences:

  • 1st Tardy: Warning
  • 2nd Tardy: Lunch Detention
  • 3rd-6th Tardy: Saturday School
  • 7th Tardy: 1 day ISS
  • 8th Tardy: Suspension pending student conference
