TO PICK UP YOUR STUDENT FOR AN APPOINTMENT: please call ahead 252-1204, email email@example.com, or, send a signed note and have the student deliver it to the Attendance Office (Room 101) before first period. Come to the Attendance Office and SIGN OUT your student. If you have a friend or relative picking up your student, please make sure they are on your emergency contact list or they will not be authorized to take the student out of the building. Call the main office to check (252-1200). Note: If you do not call ahead or send a note or an email, please be patient while we locate your student, it takes time.

GREEN CARDS: To ride a yellow bus home with a friend, parent/guardian must provide a written signed note with friend name/bus number and deliver to Attendance Office BEFORE first period. Green Cards will be prepared and students can pick up at lunch. Phone calls/emails will not be accepted as permission. Note: No Green Cards will be issued after school.
The first three have to be done EVERY year even if they just did it in the Spring.
#4 only has to be done once and it is good for any school all the way through.
