No Events Today
If a student needs to leave school for an appointment, a parent or guardian must send a written note with the student showing the time he/she is to leave. The student shows the note to his/her teacher to leave class and brings the note to the office to check out. This keeps us from having to interrupt the class and saves the parent from having to wait in the office while the student is being called. If someone other than a parent/guardian is picking up a student, that person’s name must be included on the note. Students will not be released to anyone other than a parent/guardian without written permission from a parent. Students must check in and out with the attendance secretary for all appointments. If a student does not check out with the attendance office, the absence
will not be excused. Your adhering to this policy is appreciated.
Attendance information should be called into the office no later than 8:00 am on the date of the absence by the parent/guardian. If a guardian does not call in an absence, a written excuse that includes the student’s name, date of absence and reason for absence must be submitted to the main office within 3 school days of the absence. After 3 days, the absence will be recorded as unexcused and will not be changed. There is also an answering machine available for parents needing to leave a message outside of school hours (832-5550).
