Attention Parents and Community Leaders: Torrington High School needs both parents and leaders within the community to serve on our new School Governance Council. The SGC is an ADVISORY council whose purpose is to enable parents, school staff, students, and community leaders to work together to improve student achievement in low performing schools. The SGC may ADVISE administration in areas of school needs, programmatic changes, the development of the school improvement plan, and policy issues. However, the SGC does not make final decisions in these matters.
The school day begins promptly at 7:25 a.m. with the Student Success Period. Therefore, students should arrive at school no later than 7:20 a.m.
A student’s absence should be reported by a parent or guardian by calling the Attendance Secretary at 860-489-2353 no later than 9:00 a.m.
A student’s absence from school shall be considered excused when it meets one of the established criteria.Student’s absences will be considered “unexcused” until documentation is received. Such documentation should be provided within 48 hours of return to school.
Consequence: Six “unexcused” absences in any one quarter will result in a grade of 60 (failure) for that quarter.
