SIGNING OUT PROCEDURES
Students must not be signed out of school during class, but only during class changes. This procedure is necessary in order to conform to the state law concerning class disruptions. Students who miss at least five periods will be counted absent for the day.
STUDENTS WILL NOT BE DISMISSED FROM CLASS AT ANY OTHER TIME EXCEPT FOR AN EXTREME EMERGENCY.
STUDENTS CANNOT BE SIGNED OUT AFTER 2:30 P.M.
If a student has an appointment scheduled, he or she may bring a written note from the parent/guardian and have it approved in the main office before school.
The student should show the note to the teacher at the beginning of class, and leave quietly at the necessary time without disturbing class.
*When signing out a student, please present photo ID to staff. We are required by law to check it.
