The absencewill be excused if he/she has been to the doctor prior to arriving at school; however, the student must present a note from the doctor. Although the absence will be excused for state attendance purposes, the child will not be eligible for the campus Perfect Attendance Award.
Checking the student out prior to dismissal time should be reserved for doctor’s appointments and family emergencies. If a student must be picked up before the dismissal bell rings, written notice should be provided to the teacher. Although the early out will be excused for state attendance purposes, the child will not be eligible for the campus Perfect Attendance Award.
Only people listed by the parent on the Emergency Contact Form will be allowed to remove the student from campus. No Exceptions.
Failure to pick students up at dismissal in a timely manner could result in request of assistance from the local law authorities.
