Absences, Dismissals, Detentions

posted Sep 19, 2017, 8:36 PM by Steven Tighe   [ updated Sep 19, 2017, 8:43 PM ]


If student is absent, parent should notify the school by calling 624-6352 and pressing 1 for the attendance line.  State student’s name and reason for absence so it can be excused.

If parent does not call, then a note to the office to excuse the absence is required upon returning to school.  Five or more unexcused absences will result in a parent conference with guidance.


Student should bring dismissal note to front office at the beginning of the day to receive a dismissal pass.


If student arrives after 7:35, they must go to the office for a tardy pass.  To excuse the tardy, either a parent walks in with the student or the student must have a note from the parent otherwise this tardy is unexcused.  An unexcused tardy results in an office detention the day after the student is tardy.  

Office Detentions:

Held afterschool from 2:30 to 3:05 in either 207 (Ms. Hartigan-Demers) or 213 (Mr. Tafe).
