Picking up Students during the School Day

Our process for checking out a student during the school day is as follows:

You are welcome to send a signed note with your student, stating the time you will be picking them up. The student shows the note to their teacher at that time, then they will be released to go to their House Office to sign out. After they sign out, they will wait for you in the Reception Lobby. You must come in to the school with your ID and sign your student out.

If they return the same day, you do not have to walk your student back in. They can come in to the Reception Area with their note and then check back in with their House Office. If you have any questions, please contact your student's House Office.

Absence Notes Reminder

When your student will be absent, we would appreciate a call to let us know. The direct line to report absences is 972-360-4892 or you can call the school's main line at 972-396-6975. Always remember to send a note back with your student for the absence to be excused within three days of their return.
