This note should be given to the attendance secretary before 8:20 am on the day of their early departure. Before leaving school, the student must check out through the main office. A student leaving for a school-sponsored activity is responsible for notifying his/her teacher. A student must have a pass from a teacher to sign out between classes or during lunch.
Should a student become ill while at school, the parent will be called to take the student home or to secure permission for the student to drive home. An administrator or secretary must speak with a parent/guardian, or authorized emergency contact person BEFORE the student can leave school. If students are not in the office or not checked out properly, the class absence will be considered an unauthorized absence and disciplinary measures may be taken.
