General Information

 

 

Late Arrivals:
A student who arrives late for school should report immediately to the office. An admittance to class slip will be given and the student is marked tardy. An absence for one hour will be recorded as a half-day’s absence. All students will receive four (emergency) tardies per quarter in order for inclement weather, traffic conditions etc.

Students who exceed four morning tardies are considered to have an excessive tardiness problem. A tardy received after four morning tardies will be considered unacceptable. As these tardies accumulate during the quarter, penalties will be assessed, in the hope of preventing habitual tardy problems.

Reporting Absences:
The parent or guardian of a student who will be absent from school must call the school office by 9:00 AM each day of the absence. A message explaining the student’s absence may be left on voice mail extension 36. Upon returning from an absence, a parent’s signed note stating the reason for the absence must be turned in to the school office.

Early Dismissals:
A request for early dismissal must be in writing, signed by a parent/guardian and contain the following information:
a. Student’s name
b. Date
c. Time to be excused
d. Reason for leaving
The student is to present the request to the school office for approval at the beginning of the day. A student leaving school at anytime must be signed out in the main office by a parent or guardian.

Illness:
Students who become ill at school must obtain a pass from the classroom teacher to go to the nurse’s office. A student may remain in the nurse’s room for up to approximately 20 minutes after which a decision as to whether the student should return to class or go home must be made. The parent of the student will be called at that point. The parent or guardian of the student must come to pick up the student. When the parent/guardian arrives, they must sign the student out at the school office.
