Students that are failing 2 or more classes are required to stay the normal time on early release days. Students can work on missing assignments; make up work, extra studying. If they are assigned a Study Table it is mandatory. Failure to show, or make arrangements, will result in disciplinary action.

Student Absences

If a student is absent, please call the school at 746-3227 before 10:00 am to report the absence. When the student returns to school, he or she has two school days to turn in either a parent note or doctor’s note giving a reason for the absence. In order for the absence to be excused, this note must be turned in to the attendance office (regardless of whether or not a call to school was made).

If a student has a doctor’s appointment, please bring a doctor’s note in to excuse the absence.

Medicine at School

Students are not allowed to possess medicine (even over –the-counter varieties) while on school property. All medicine must be turned to the office by a parent with a doctor’s note describing its use. Failure to comply with this rule may result in disciplinary action.


`Cellular Phones

Students are not allowed to use or have cellular phones at school during the hours of 7:25-2:10. If a student is found to have a cell phone on during school hours, the phone will be held in the office until a parent is able to come to the school and retrieve the phone.

Student Drop-Off/Pick-Up

We will continue our new drop off procedure. Parents will enter in the east parking lot and proceed down the new access road. Drop offs will turn left to the designated area. Please remember that students are NOT to be dropped off in front of the school (Fairview) until after 7:30am.
