Miscellaneous Information

Things you'll need to know for the current school year:

Absence Reporting Procedures

When your child will be absent from class, please call the school office no later than 7:30 a.m. for high school students or 8:30 a.m. for elementary students. When calling with dismissal messages, please call no later than 3:00 p.m. 


  1. Students who must leave school early are to obtain a pass from the office prior to the start of school. Parents must provide written request, stating the reason for early dismissal before the office staff will issue a pass. Students who leave for an appointment and return before the end of the regular school day must report to the office upon return. Information regarding early departure and time of return will appear on the daily attendance log provided to teachers. When entering or leaving the building at other than regular times, students are to come to the office and sign in/out.
  2. We do encourage parents/guardians to arrange their vacations so they do not interfere with the regular school calendar.
  3. Absences will be considered unexcused if the guidelines are not followed, in which case the student will receive a zero for all work missed. Absences must be verified by 9:00 a.m. the next day or the absence may remain unexcused.

If your child's after school transportation will be different from normal, send a note to the child's teacher, if possible.  For last minute changes, call the school office by 3:00 p.m.
