Unexcused Absence – Students are allowed up to eight hours of classroom absences before being placed on attendance probation.  Any additional time missed may result in dismissal from the program. When a student is tardy or absent it is required that within 24 hours an e-mail must be sent  to the school explaining the cause for the tardy or absence.

Unexcused Tardy – Students are allowed up to four classroom tardies before being place on attendance probation.  Any additional time missed may result in dismissal from the program.  A tardy is defined as arriving to the classroom/instructor after the scheduled start time.  If the student arrives more than 45 minutes late or leaves more than 45 minutes late they will be marked absent (4 hour blocks).  The student may still participate in the remainder of the current sessions activities.  It is the student’s responsibility to bring to the instructors attention the moment they arrive.  A courtesy call to EMTS would be appreciated to notify us of your delay.  The number is 972-527-3687.
