Attendance Policy

When students are absent they should turn in an excuse for the absence to their 1st-period teacher on the day they return to school. When a student turns in an excuse they will be given all assignments that were missed during their absence. Students will have 3 days to complete and submit any missing assignments to their instructor. Coursework will not be provided to students that do not provide an acceptable excused absence note within 3 days of their return. As in the past, all doctor’s notes will be considered an excused absence. However, only 3 parent notes will be accepted as excused absences per 9 weeks. This includes check-outs. When a student checks out of school, for any portion of the day, it will be considered a parent note unless the student turns in a doctor excuse the following day to his/her 1st period teacher. Any additional parent notes will be considered as an unexcused absence.

3rd, 4th, 5th tardies to class – central detention is assigned per tardy

Northside High School Theatre

Northside High School’s theatre department was founded in 2002, the school’s inaugural year, under the direction of Ms. Lisa Brinker (retired). At that time, Ms. Brinker, Mr. Harper, and Mrs. Hull produced 2 shows a year: The Fall GHSA One Act, and a follies production commonly known as Dinner Theatre or “DT” for short. Since then the program has grown to produce four (4) shows a year for people with varying interests and skill levels. We annually produce a Georgia High School Association One Act Competition piece, a holiday show, a children’s theatre show, and a spring musical. Northside Theatre provides every student an opportunity to release their creative energy in a positive and encouraging ​environment. Outside of a thriving and competitive extracurricular program, NHS Theatre has an active booster club, a superior curricular program, and boasts an active volunteer performance schedule that ranges from touring our children’s shows to elementary schools to performing for nursing homes and community dinners.
