Bell Schedule

The school assumes responsibility of the supervision of students at 7:20 a.m.



Regular school attendance is essential for a student to make the most of his or her education--to benefit from teacher-led and school activities, to build each day's learning on the previous day's, and to grow as an individual. Absences from class may result in serious disruption of a student's mastery of the instructional materials; therefore, the student and parent should make every effort to avoid unnecessary absences.

Parent's Note After An Absence:

When a student must be absent from school, the student --upon returning to school-- must bring a note, signed by the parent that describes the reason for the absence. A note signed by the student, even with the parent's permission, will not be accepted unless the student is 18 or older.

Doctor's Note After An Absence for Illness:

Upon return to school, a student absent for more than 4 consecutive days because of a personal illness must bring a statement from a doctor or health clinic verifying the illness or condition that caused the student's extended absence from school.


A student is considered tardy if he/she is not in an assigned seat when class begins.
Each student is allowed four tardies per semester without penalty. Beginning with the fifth tardy, a student is assigned on detention for each tardy. With a hall pass and/or note, teacher or administrators may give a student permission to arrive to class after the tardy bell rings. Without such permission, however, students are considered tardy. Students will be considered tardy in the event of car trouble, oversleeping, missing the bus, or riding with others who are tardy.
