If your student is ill or not going to be at school, please call the Attendance Office.
When your child has an appointment, we ask that parents/guardians call in no later than two (2) hours prior to the appointment whenever possible. The same applies to parents/guardians needing to pick up their child early from school.
Students who have an appointment scheduled during the school day need to stop by Students Services to pick up an off-campus pass from Mrs. McAnderson between classes prior to their appointment. This limits classroom interruptions while ensuring students get their pass to leave on time.
