Palmetto High School's commitment to provide a safe and orderly environment is a primary concern. Orderly and efficient schools are the foundation for increasing student achievement and morale. On the first day of school, Palmetto High School students will receive the new
Code of Student Conduct. Extra copies of this publication are available at the school site or on the District website at www.manateeschools.net for your convenience. Thank you for taking the time to read and discuss this information with your child and to assist us in raising the daily expectations and performance of our students.

Attendance is a critical component for your child's success in the classroom. Florida Law requires each parent of a child less than 18 years of age to be responsible for the child's school attendance. Palmetto High School will notify parents if their child is absent from school each day via a school call out. Per Florida law, students are allowed nine excused absences per year. A parent may excuse those nine absences. However, on the 10th and subsequent absence, the parent will need to submit official documentation to have the absence(s) excused. You must provide appropriate documentation to the school principal or designee for approval. These will be recorded as excused absences. Continued unexcused absences could result in the child being brought before the Juvenile Court to explain his/her absences. For more information about attendance policies, refer to the Manatee County School District Code of Conduct, Student Attendance.
Notifying the School of an Absence
When a student is going to be absent from school, Palmetto High School asks the parent or guardian to call the school. The attendance phone number is 723-4848, ext. 8, and to follow the prompt for reporting an absence. This line is available 24 hours a day. When you call, please give all of the information requested. If you are aware that your child will be absent for any length of time, have them come to Student Services and pick up a form from the attendance secretary. It must be signed by all teachers and handed back into Student Services one week before the absence is to occur. State law requires all absences to be unexcused unless they fall into the following documented reasons:
Assignments from Absences
According to the Manatee County Schools Code of Student Conduct, make-up work is the responsibility of the student:
Attendance Required for Participation in School Activities
No student will be permitted to participate in school activities on any day that he/she has been absent from school for more than one-half of the school day. Suspended students are not eligible to be on campus or participate in any school activities.
School Dress Code
(As Outlined in the District’s 2012-2013 Code of Student Conduct)
Apparel that disrupts educational activities and processes of the school will result in the removal of the student from the regular school environment until acceptable apparel may be secured for the student. The school principal or designee will be the final judge about whether a student’s clothing is appropriate for school, creates a climate that is distracting to learning, or is a potential safety hazard. Principals, faculty, and staff members will enforce the dress code. Individual schools may have additional requirements if supported by a majority of School Advisory Council (SAC) members, and if parents are notified in writing of the changes.
You are expected to dress appropriately for school and for the business of learning with proper attention given to personal cleanliness, grooming, and neatness. If your personal attire or grooming distracts the attention of other students or teachers from their school work, you will be required to make the necessary alterations to such attire or grooming before entering the classroom or you may be sent home. If you fail to meet the minimum acceptable standards of cleanliness, neatness, safety and decency as determined by the principal or designee and as specified in this Code, you will be subject to appropriate disciplinary measures, including suspension.
