Check-in / Check-out
If a student is checking in late, the student should check in at the attendance office.
If a student knows they are being checked out, the student is to bring in a parent note to the attendance office before school. The last check out is 1:15pm.
Students who anticipate being absent can fill out a prearranged absence form found in the attendance office. This form needs to be turned in to the attendance office for final approval.
To excuse an absence please bring a note from your parent or from your doctor to the Attendance Office before school or during lunch.
It is best for students to choose to visit colleges during the weekend or summer and not to miss a school day for a college visit. If a senior must go to a college during a school day they will need to present the College Visit form to the attendance office upon their return from the college. Parents need to fill out a portion, then it is presented to each teacher, upon the actual visit to the college, a signature from a college official is needed to verify that the senior attended the visitation. Once the form is complete, it will be turned in to the school’s attendance office.
