Student Check-in to School

  • Students learning to manage time to meet their responsibilities is an important goal in high school.  On occasion a student may arrive at school late. If this happens, students must check-in with the Attendance Office. The secretaries will excuse the absence/tardy with a note from a parent/guardian, orthodontist, dentist, doctor, etc. If a student does not have a note, that tardy or absence will not be excused. Only tardies that occur when a student arrives at school for the day or following an appropriate check-out can be excused.
  • A tardy of 15 minutes or more will be marked as an absence.

Student Check-out of School

  • Students who have a shortened schedule will be required to check in and out at the office every day.

Parent Check-out Student Procedures

  • Please go to the attendance/main office to check your student out of school early.  Allow ten minutes for the checkout process.                                     
  • Students are not excused from school and may not leave campus unless their reason for leaving is verified by office staff in person by the parent/guardian or person listed as the student’s emergency contact(s).  Parents/guardians will need to sign students out in the checkout log.  Your student will not be released to ANY person NOT listed, and ANY person picking up the student will need to present a photo ID (i.e. driver’s license).   
  • Unless there is an urgent reason, parents/guardians are encouraged to make appointments for medical or dental work, music or dance lessons, and/or family vacations at hours which do not conflict with normal school time.

Dress Code

Students, teachers, and staff are expected to dress in a manner that demonstrates they respect themselves and the learning environment.  Clothing should be neat, clean, and appropriate for learning and weather conditions.  It should not draw inappropriate attention to the wearer, nor disrupt the learning environment.  If clothing or behavior is distracting to teachers or students, such clothing or behavior is unacceptable.  Staff will determine when an individual student is in violation of the dress code.  Parents may be called to bring the student a suitable change of clothing.  Parents are also expected to observe the dress code whenever they are in the building or participating in an student activity.

The following would be considered in violation of the dress code:

  • Garments that are low enough to reveal a student's underwear
  • Clothing advertising drugs, alcohol, tobacco, acts of violence or lawlessness
