Leaving Campus During the Day

​Once a student has arrived on campus, he/she is expected to be in class. If a student must leave campus prior to the end of the day, the parent should notify the attendance office as soon as possible.  If you are aware of an upcoming absence, you may notify the Attendance Office in advance; you do not need to wait until the actual day of absence. 

  • Your student will receive a pass during the block in which they need to leave school

  • The student MUST check in with Attendance upon returning to school (even during passing periods or lunch)

  • If student is arriving late to school due to an excused absence, they MUST check in with Attendance

  • If student is arriving late to school due to an unexcused absence, they may go straight to class

Pre-Arranged Absence

​For an extended pre-planned absence of more than two consecutive days, please fill out our Pre-Arranged Absence Form, and print it out for students. Please allow your student enough time to obtain the required signatures and turn in the signed form to the Attendance Office no later than 2 days before the absence.
