Illness, going home, Vacations:  Please note that students may not be released to go home.  If your son or daughter becomes ill at school you will be asked to come to the school to get him or her.  Yes, even if they are 18 years of age.  So, if you feel sick, stay home but if you make it to school plan to stay the whole day. 
 
Some families schedule vacation during the school year.  We wish to remind you that helping your child finish high school must be the priority.  Vacations that take students out of school are not excusable absences and should be scheduled around the school calendar.   
 
Attendance and Punctuality:  Your son or daughter's key to success rests on coming to school every day and being on time for school.  First class begins at 8:25 AM.  Lateness for school or poor attendance will result in loss of privileges like outside lunch and will result in failing grades.
