    • When your student leaves school with a pass, they need to sign out.

     

    • Please try to give us advance notice to release your student. You can always call in the morning if you know the time you want them released. If your student is in athletics last period, please contact us before 2:45 pm. Often they are outside and we may not be able to locate them.

    • Tests, Exams & Finals – We do not interrupt rooms when students are testing. In the event of an emergency, the parents will need to speak with their student's Assistant Principal.
