Parking Changes:

Throughout the school year many events that take place at the middle school and high school cause parking issues. Too often we have cars parked in fire lanes, in the grass, and along sidewalks. When cars are parked in non-designated spots we run the risk of not having enough room to bring in emergency vehicles if ever necessary. Currently we have roughly 65 parking spots in the parking lot located between the middle school and high school. Because of the tremendous parent support our school system receives we can not accommodate everyone’s parking needs in the lot between the middle school and high school. With this in mind please utilize the parking lot located on the west side of high school (over 250 parking spots available) located next to our football stadium. You are able to access this parking lot by using the north entrance. Thank you for your help with this situation!

Prearranged Student Absences:

If a student has an extra-special occasion coming up that will keep him/her out of school, they may ask for an advance absence permit. The student must bring a note from their parents requesting that they be excused and give the reason before they expect to be absent. The note is to be taken to the main office and a prearranged absence slip obtained. The prearranged absence slip is then taken to each of the student’s teachers who will sign the slip and provide homework assignments. After all teachers have approved the absence, the student returns the slip to the main office. Final approval will be given by the principal. IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO WORK OUT AN ARRANGEMENT WITH EACH TEACHER FOR WORK MISSED. The limit on the above is 5 days per semester. Prearranged excused absences for hunting or family vacation are limited to 5 days per semester. Days in excess of 5 will be classified as unexcused absences. (Requests for extensions must have prior approval of the principal - satisfactory academic standing and the student’s attendance are both important factors considered).
