Check-Out Procedures:

*Please go to door #44 at the back of the school (near the Trojan statue and courtyard) for all check outs. No check outs are done through the front office. Remembering this will save you some time when you arrive to check out your student.

  • Students drop check-out notes in the basket on the attendance clerk’s desk before 8:30 in the morning.
  • Notes will be verified by the attendance clerk prior to the time of check-out.
  • Check-out notes need the following information:
    • Student’s first and last name (printed)
    • Time of check-out
    • Reason for check-out
    • Parent’s signature
    • Parent’s contact information

Without a parent note, no student will be allowed to check out unless a parent/guardian comes to the Attendance Office to check out the student. Parent notes must be turned in to the Attendance Office before 8:30 a.m. No phone or email checkouts will be allowed. The only exception will be if the school nurse determines that a student is sick and needs to go home. The school nurse will then contact the parent/guardian and the Attendance Office.

*Please remember that we do not allow walk-in check outs after 3:00 p.m.
