Any student leaving campus during school hours must obtain an OFF-CAMPUS PASS from the attendance office BEFORE leaving.  If a student leaves without a pass, a detention will be issued accordingly.  Before the student returns to class, the OFF-CAMPUS PASS should be returned to the attendance office for verification and permission to return to class.


If student is sick and needs to go home, the student will go to the health office during passing time or at lunch.  If the student is sick during class time, the teacher will give the student a pass to go to the health office.  The nurse will arrange for parent approval for student to leave campus and disperse an off campus pass to the student.   Students are not allowed to leave campus without an off-campus pass, either from the health office due to sickness or the attendance office for appointments.  


If the student forgot a binder, project, lunch, ID, wallet, cell phone, etc., parents will have to bring the forgotten item(s) to the student during passing periods ONLY.  The office will NOT HOLD ANY ITEMS FOR THE STUDENTS. The parent will meet the student in the front desk area in order to give the item to the student.
