Notification of Absence, Late Arrival or Early Dismissal
Please contact the school by calling (317) 843-9500 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 8:10 am (Middle School) or 8:30 am (High School) if your student will be:
- Arriving late (Middle school must enter through front doors after 8:10 am)
- Leaving early (for appointment or other reason)
Your student’s safety and security on campus is VERY important to us. We care about your student. If we have not received notification from you, our staff becomes concerned if your student does not arrive or is missing from class. Please respond to all attendance inquiries as soon as possible.
School attendance is vital to the success of every child’s education. If your child is absent for more than three days, we ask that a doctor’s note is provided to excuse the absences.
Tardiness will be excused due to doctor’s visits, inclement weather or if administration deems the tardiness to be excused. Students must sign in with the front office upon arrival. Excessive tardiness and absences may result in disciplinary action or dismissal from the school.
Coming Home Due to Illness
No student will be sent home from school for illness unless the school has first contacted a parent or guardian. The school must receive written permission from a parent or guardian for student drivers to drive themselves home. Students who leave school due to illness are not eligible to participate in that day’s after school activities. Students will be required to meet with individual teachers upon their return to collect missing work.
Staying Home Due to Illness
While regular attendance is necessary, if your child is ill, he or she should remain home, not only for his or her own health, but also for the health of his or her classmates. Therefore, we ask that you not send your child to school if they have exhibited the following:
- Vomiting within the past 24 hours
- Pink eye, or
- Symptoms of other communicable illnesses
