Attendance Office Hours
Monday – Friday: 7:00am – 2:00pm

Haines City High School believes that regular school attendance is an important part of educational success. Florida Law requires all students between the ages of 6 to 16 years old to attend school regularly. Haines City High School and Polk County School District take attendance serious as legal action may be taken against the parent and/or the student if the non-attendance issue is not resolved.
