From the Attendance Office. . .
Tardy Policy: School starts at 8:15 am. Students should be in class by 8:10. Students arriving late without a note or telephone call to the office will be assigned a lunch detention the same day. Students who do not serve lunch detention will be assigned O-Room afterschool the same day.
Off Campus Permit: Students are to bring a note from the parent/guardian to the attendance office on the day of the requested early release. This note needs to specify the following: 1) reason for leaving early, 2) time of release, 3) name of person picking the student up (picture ID will be requested) or permission for the student to walk/ride bike.
NO STUDENTS WILL BE RELEASED FROM CLASS DURING THE LAST FIFTEEN MINUTES OF THE SCHOOL DAY (3:00 – 3:15).
Absences: Parent/Guardian must call the attendance office (498.6000) on the morning of an absence. If the absence is not excused, the parent will receive an automated call between 5:00 – 9:00pm notifying them that the student was absent and reminding them of the need to excuse the absence. A signed blue slip, available from the attendance office, or a note will also excuse, but not clear the absence. Absences can only be cleared by attending Saturday school.
Perfect Attendance: Perfect attendance is important and provides a competitive edge when seeking college admission.
