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.
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.

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.
