Study Hall Reminder: Students need to sign in to their study hall. All students are marked absent each morning for study hall until they sign in. 11th and 12th grade students are allowed to leave school during their study hall if it starts or ends their day. 9th and 10th grade students must attend all of their study halls, even if the study hall starts or ends their day. This applies to Block Days as well.
