For grades 7-12, the first bell rings at 7:45 a.m. and class begins promptly at 7:55 a.m. Students will not enter school before 7:45 a.m. because supervision is not available until that time.
There is a drop off point for students on Alaska Loop. It is designated by pavement stripes and is adjacent to a paved path to the crosswalk. By letting your child off at the appropriate point, you help to keep the campus free of unnecessary automobile traffic at a time when children are going to classes in our many buildings. Please practice safety for all our children and use the drop off.
The designated drop off zone is located on Alaska Loop.
The bell to dismiss students rings at 2:50 p.m. Each student must observe the following rules:
Students cannot be released to non-family members without written verification from the sponsor. If a parent intends to pick up a student before regular dismissal time, a note should be sent to the teacher that morning or the previous day. Do not call the office unless it is an emergency. We make every effort not to disrupt classes.
A parent who wishes to take a student out of school during the school day (for a medical appointment for example), should send a note indicating the specific time the child should be released from class. The Student Affairs Office will contact the teacher and the student will be sent to the office. If the note from the parent indicates a specific pick up time, the teacher may wish to send the student to the office to wait for the parent. Please do not go to your student’s classroom without checking with the office first.
Late arrivals will be considered "tardy unexcused" unless the school receives written verification from the parent or sponsor consistent with the reasons for excused absences.
Students are expected to report to school each day on time and to report to all classes on time. Failure to do so constitutes tardiness.
Students are responsible for making up all missed work when arriving late to class. d. Students missing less than Y2 school day will be counted present, but will be marked "tardy excused", or "tardy unexcused."
Consequences for a tardy from 0 to 14 minutes will be given by the teacher. When a student is more than 15 minutes late for school, he/she must sign in at the office with a note from parents stating the reason for the tardiness. If there is no note, the student will receive a RE-ADMIT SLIP marked “unexcused” until a note is presented. A “three day time limit” will apply. If a student is more than 45-minutes late for class, it is an absence requiring a note. Students who are tardy for class more than three times may be reported to administration for disciplinary action. Tardiness disrupts class and cannot be tolerated.
