Parents of 8th graders
Don’t forget to purchase a baby ad to be included in the yearbook for your child. Ads are $25 and are due by November 15th. Forms may be picked up outside of Mrs. Ray’s room on the 8th grade hall.
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.
Is your teacher (or your child's teacher) doing some amazing things and deserves the Golden Apple Award sponsored by WJBF? You can submit a nomination form or contact the Savannah Strom at WJBF for more information (706)513-9552.
