Dropping your student off late?  If you have notified the school of your student's absence or if your student has a note, you do not need to come into the office.  Please send your student to the Main Office to get an Admit Slip.  


Need to pick your student up early? You will need to come to the office to sign your student out if they are leaving early. To notify us of the appointment, you have 2 options:

  1. send a note with your student to give to the Student Services Office before school begins in the morning OR

  2. Use the SafeArrival System in one of these ways:

An early dismissal pass will be issued which will allow the student to leave class at the designated time. The student will be waiting in the vestibule in the main office for your arrival.  

A doctor's note should be obtained for the absence to be considered exempt. A parent/guardian must come in the building to sign the student out. If the student is returning from the appointment, they do not need to be accompanied.
