Leaving Campus During the school day

The Student Services and Conduct handbook outlines when a student can leave campus during the school day on page 7

Off-Campus During School Day - Students are not allowed to leave during the regular school day without permission from the Attendance Office. If a student needs to leave campus during the school day, his/her parent must send a note with the student for the Attendance Office or visit the Attendance Office to request a release before the student leaves campus. No phone calls will be accepted. Students must obtain an Off-Campus Permit before leaving campus. It is recommended that medical/dental appointments be made after school. The Attendance Office will not clear students who leave campus without first obtaining an off-campus pass from the Attendance Office. Discipline for leaving campus without following the appropriate procedures include detention, Saturday School, and a Discipline Director conference.

Off-Campus Lunch Permit - Seniors are allowed to leave campus for lunch if they apply for and are granted an Off Campus Pass. Applications are available in the Assistant Principal’s office. If a senior leaves campus and does not return from lunch, he/she is truant. The Off Campus Pass is subject to immediate cancellation if the holder violates any school rules or municipal or state laws.
