Early Dismissal Procedure

This information is listed in the student handbook…. 
Early dismissals or late arrivals 
Parents are strongly urged to make doctor and dentist appointments outside of school hours. If 
students must 
miss school, all school work missed during such absences will be made up under the guidelines 
established 
by the individual classroom teacher. 
If students are leaving school early for an appointment, the students must bring a written 
request from home 
stating the reason and time for the early dismissal. The note needs to be brought to the office 
before school 
starts in the morning. The students’ names and times of dismissal will appear on the daily 
attendance sheet. 
STUDENTS ARE NOT TO LEAVE THE BUILDING WITHOUT PARENTAL PERMISSION AND 
ATTENDANCE CLERK NOTIFICATION. Students who fail to follow this procedure will be 
considered truant 
under the single class truancy policy. Students leaving (excused) before 10:50 and not returning 
to school will 
be counted absent for one-half day. 
Students arriving late to school must report to the attendance clerk in the main office and bring a 
written 
excuse from a parent or doctor. Students arriving (excused) after 10:50 will be counted absent 
for onehalf 
day. 
NOTE: Students must be in attendance from 10:50 until the conclusion of the school day to 
participate 
in extracurricular activities and/or athletic events.
