Absences: If you need to call your students out sick, or for any other reason, please call Mrs. Patino at 317-852-2258 EXT. 1601 by 10 am. Please leave a voicemail with your name, the name of your student, and the reason why your student is absent. Even when your students is absent just for part of the day, is important for us to know ahead of time. Students are responsible for checking Schoology for missing work and contacting their teachers to check what they missed during their absence.

Appointments: When picking up early is very helpful as well to call ahead of time, notify Mrs. Patino as early in the day as possible (by phone or email or even the day prior to the appointment. Mrs. Patino will send a pass to your student earlier in the day so they can leave class on time to meet with you at door#1 by the time requested, no need to come in to sign out your student, or call again when you're at the door. Please note, some classes (like P.E., Choir, Band, Guard) are unable to answer phones during class, and it is extremely difficult to find students once they get to the cafeteria for lunch. This may result in the students running late to their appointment which we do not want to happen.

Only parents can call out students, but students can be picked up by another family member if specified on your message.
