ATTENDANCE / TARDY INFORMATION
How do I sign my child out of school?
Please go the Front office, show identification, and your child will be called to the front office.
So that children do not miss out on valuable class time, we are unable to call children to the front office until their parent/guardian has arrived in the office to sign the student out.
Students cannot be signed out of school after 2:30PM (1:30 PM on Wednesdays); they will need to wait until regular dismissal time. This is to ensure the campus remains as organized as possible as we guide over 700 students through the dismissal process.
What if my child has to miss school due to illness or appointments?
If your child misses school due to illness it is always wise to have a doctor’s excuse. If you do not bring your child to the doctor for the illness, write a note and bring it to the front office so your child can be excused.
If they were out for an appointment, please get a doctor’s excuse from their office or show proof that you were there. It will be excused.
