Check out Procedure

Once on campus, students must check out through the Attendance or Health office before leaving school. Students may not leave campus without a checkout slip from either the Attendance or Health office. Failure to do so will result in a truancy.

To check your student out early for medical appointments, please send a signed note with your student indicating time of release and reason. Students will bring the note to the Attendance windows in the breezeway in the morning and wait for a check-out slip. They will show it to their teacher during the period they need to be released and may then meet their parent at an arranged location. Please do not call to have your student released early as we do not check students out over the phone. Written or faxed notes only will be accepted. You may also come to the Attendance windows in the breezeway and sign your student out. Please allow ample time for Attendance staff to locate and retrieve your student. If your student checks out for a medical appointment, please have the Doctor’s office sign or stamp the checkout slip. Upon their return, the student will bring the stamped slip to the Attendance windows in the breezeway. If your student feels, ill, they may go to the Health office and the Nurse will notify a parent if they need to go home.
