  2. Say the first name.
  3. State the reason for absence, late arrival or early dismissal.
  4. State the pick-up time for early dismissal.

Note: A late phone call is better than no phone call. Call with attendance changes any time of day.

Early Dismissal From School

Only a parent, guardian or emergency contact may pick up a student early from school.  Make sure information is accurate and up-to-date in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Emergency contacts are required to show identification.

IMPORTANT:  Students leaving school early are responsible for keeping track of the time and letting their teacher know when they need to leave the classroom.  The front office prefers not to call classrooms and interrupt instructional time.

Updating Student Information

Drop Off Items

Drop off items should be placed on the Drop Off Table in the Main Office. It is students’ responsibility to pick up items during a passing period or their lunch period. To minimize disruptions, we do NOT notify students about deliveries with the exception of an occasional lunch or medical item.

Outside Food

Outside food is NOT allowed. In an effort to protect students with food allergies, carry-out restaurant food is not permitted in the cafeteria.

Feeling Sick?

Students should go to the Clinic to be assessed by the school nurse. The nurse will determine if a student needs to go home. Students should NOT call parents for pick up before seeing the nurse.

Transportation Change

A transportation change (ride your bus/carpool pickup) can be communicated directly with your child via phone/text. If you are unable to notify your child directly, you may call the Main Office and we will get a note to your child.

Riding a Different Bus Home From School

Students requesting to go home with a friend on a different bus must submit a signed note from their parent to the MAIN OFFICE in the morning. Students should return to the main office after first block to pick up a Bus Pass (during passing period, before/after lunch, after school). The Bus Pass is given to the driver upon boarding. Passes are NOT issued the day BEFORE a holiday weekend or any district-scheduled day off school.
