CHECK IN PROCEDURES
 
A student who arrives late to school (after 8:00) must  CHECK IN in the Main Office and get a pass before he/she goes to his/her locker and class.  Any student who does not check in may receive disciplinary consequences.

CHECK OUT PROCEDURES

For your convenience, two options are available:

OPTION 1:  SEND A NOTE (PREFERRED METHOD)

  • The parent/guardian sends a note to school with the student.
  • The student brings the note into the Main Office before 1st hour.
  • Student will be given an Early Release Pass to leave class 5 minutes previous to the time designated in the note.
  • Parent does NOT need to come in to the building to pick up their student.
  • Student will check out in the Main Office and may walk out to the parent's vehicle.

The note should include:
  • Student first and last name
  • Reason for early release
  • Time of early release
  • Name of adult picking up student
  • If student will be returning

OPTION 2:  PARENT COMES INTO THE OFFICE

  • Parent/guardian may personally come into the Main Office and request the student for early release.
  • ID will be required at that time.
  • Student will be called out of class to meet the parent/guardian in the main office.

SCHOOL MONITORING

Our secondary teachers take attendance hourly and this attendance can be viewed within minutes of the teacher entering the absence into the computer.  Parents of absent middle school students will receive a phone call regarding absences during the morning or later in the afternoon.

HOMEWORK REQUESTS

If a student will be absent for three consecutive days, parents may use the Absent Student Homework Request form.  The completed request should be available after 3:00pm the following school day.

If you do not have access to a computer, please call the Planning Room Supervisor at (734)744-2675 ext. 38971.  You can also visit the teacher's web pages to view assignments that have been posted.  Many times this will alleviate the need for a Homework Request.

PLEASE NOTE:  Homework requests for less than 3 days are at the discretion of each teacher and are handled by the individual teachers.
