Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures
Morning Drop Off Procedures
Students should be dropped off in the front of the building. They should exit their vehicle any where along the front of the building. There is room for approximately 10 cars to unload. This will help speed up the drop off process.
Afternoon Drop Off Procedures
Students can only be picked up in the designated area in the front of the school. We are having problems with students walking to other parking lots to be picked up. Since the safety of your child is our number one priority, we are only able to monitor your child in the front of the school. Once they walk off school grounds, we are not responsible for them.
Thank you for your help in ensuring our students are safe!

Failure to Comply with Compulsory Attendance
School employees must investigate and report violations of the state compulsory attendance law. A student absent without permission from school; from any class; from required special programs, such as additional special instruction, termed “accelerated instruction” by the state; or from required tutorials will be considered in violation of the compulsory attendance law and subject to disciplinary action.
A court of law may also impose penalties against both the student and his or her parents if a school-aged student is deliberately not attending school. A complaint against the parent may be filed in court if the student:
· Is absent from school on ten or more days or parts of days within a six-month period in the same school year, or
· Is absent on three or more days or parts of days within a four-week period.
If the student is age 18 or older, the student’s parents will not be subject to penalties as a result of their child’s violation of state compulsory attendance law. [See policy FEA(LEGAL).]
