Tardiness and leaving early

WHEN YOUR STUDENT IS LATE FOR SCHOOL:
Please have them report directly to class.  The teacher will change the absence to a tardy.

WHEN YOUR CHILD NEEDS TO LEAVE EARLY:

When it is necessary for a student to leave campus for an appointment or illness, the student must pick up an Off Grounds Pass in the Attendance Office.

If leaving for an appointment, student brings a note to the Attendance Counter to receive an Off-Grounds Pass.  If student does not bring  a note, a parent may call.

If the student returns to school after the appointment, he/she needs to bring the Off Grounds Pass back to the Attendance Counter signed by parent, doctor or dentist to clear the absence.

If the student is not returning to school after the appointment, or because they are ill the parent/guardian will need to indicate this when taking the student and the student will be cleared for the rest of the day.
