Ordean Middle School Weekly Update

October 13, 2022

Attendance Reminder

Students leaving early MUST come to the office with a note before school to get a pass to leave. Due to the volume of calls each day, we ask that families not call during the day to ask for a pass to be sent. This is disruptive to the classroom and we may not be able to deliver it in time.


If the student does not have a note then the parent/guardian will need to come into the front office to sign out the student, at which time we will call the student to the office. All students coming or going during the day MUST sign in or out through the front office.


If your child is going be absent or tardy for any reason, please contact the school at 336-8940 ext. 4201 or email ordeanattendance@isd709.org.
