Dismissals, Check-outs and Notes

Dismissals, Check Outs, and Notes

A student who leaves early for any reason must have a note on file in the attendance office at the time of his/her checkout for the absence to be counted as excused. The note shall also be required for students who are 18 years old and still living at home. A student who leaves school early must be checked out by a parent/guardian unless the student drives to school. Students who drive to school may check themselves out as long as they have a note from a parent/guardian. Students who leave school grounds without permission will be subject to disciplinary action.  Students may not ride with other students without written parental permission.


To receive an early dismissal from the office, students must meet the following requirements:

  • Acquire written permission signed by a parent.
  • Request an early dismissal between 8:30 a.m. and 8:50 a.m. in the attendance office.
  • Obtain signature approval of the early dismissal from an administrator or the administrator’s designee.
  • Report to the office when called by the office secretary. 
  • Show the dismissal slip to the teacher prior to leaving class.
  • Be checked out by a parent/guardian at the time of leaving (if do not have driving privileges).

(Forged notes for early dismissals will result in disciplinary action.)
