    Absence Procedures

     1. Leaving Early or Arriving Late During the School Day

    A student who needs to leave the school building for any reason during the school day or arrive late must check in and obtain a pass from the Attendance Window at the main office. This includes during passing time, lunch periods, and study halls. Guardians who wish for a student to be excused during the school day must call the school prior to the time the student is to be excused. Any student who leaves the building or arrives late without prior permission will be considered unexcused.
