attendance policy
Attendance Policy

To earn credit for a class, a student must not only earn a passing grade (D- or better), but must be in class a minimum of 87% of the days of the quarter (20 of approximately 23 possible class periods per quarter).

If a student has a verified truancy or 4 or more absences per class, per quarter, the student will receive a no grade (NG) for the quarter for that class.

Absences will only be excused for sickness, medical appointments, court appointments or family weddings and funerals and ONLY with official documentation (i.e. Dr’s note, court documents, wedding or funeral program).

For athletic eligibility purposes, student government, and other programs that have a minimum GPA requirement, NG is counted as a failing grade.

NGs may be made up through attendance school.

individual appointments
Individual Appointments

Unfortunately, counselors will NOT be available for individual appointments with incoming sophomores through the rest of this year.

We ARE available right after this orientation to answer questions.

We will be available to answer phone calls & emails.

You may call the Counseling Center at 801-256-5120. PLEASE give us at least 24 hours to return your phone call.

school song
School Song

Bingham sons and daughters

Like the mighty waters

Roll along to victory.

Tides of warriors greet us

With their teams to beat us

But we’ll fight for victory.

Onward, onward, team against the foe

Forward, forward, our honored banners go.

All our foes will tremble

As our teams assemble

On, on, on to victory.
