Leaving School Early

If students need to leave early due to illness or an emergency appointment that could not be rescheduled to before or after the school day, the following policies will be adhered to:

  1. If the student is 17 and younger, parent or guardian must pick them up.  Parent signs early dismissal book in the attendance office.  Parent receives early dismissal pass.
  2. If the student is 18 and older then they can sign out for the day with verbal consent from their parent or guardian.  They are sent to the attendance office to receive early dismissal pass.

Attendance Policy

Families are advised to schedule medical appointments, court dates, and vacations when school is not in session to minimize interruption in schoolwork that may impact academic progress. The attached 2017-2018 school calendar is provided to help you plan your personal events and appropriately.
