Please see the reminder below from our Student Services about Late Arrival and Early Dismissal

Partial Day Absences for Upper and Middle School Students

Early Dismissal Slips
For a student to be dismissed during the school day, a note from the parent must be presented to the Student Services Office. Unless a student has his own transportation, a responsible adult must sign the student out of school. Notes of dismissal will be subject to confirmation by telephone at any time.

When the parent knows ahead of time about the absence, the parent must notify the Student Services Office of the reason. Students will be issued early dismissal slips that are to be signed by all teachers whose classes they are missing. Failure to return the completed slip to the Student Services Office before the student leaves campus may result in an unexcused absence. Early dismissal slips are also issued when a student has to leave school during the day. (If the student cannot find a teacher, Mrs. Semore, Dr. Frizzell, or Mr. Fisher may sign for that teacher.)

Late Arrival Slips
When a student is absent the first part of the day, but comes to school for the remainder of the day, the parents must notify the Student Services Office of the reason. The student should go directly to the Student Services Office to receive a late arrival slip that is to be signed by all teachers whose classes the student missed. Failure to return the signed slip to the Student Services Office before the end of the last period of that same day will result in an unexcused absence. 

The early dismissal and late arrival slips are are designed to allow the student the opportunity to gather assignments or to make arrangements for make-up work.
