How do I handle PE medical exemption? A letter written by a parent or legal guardian may partially excuse a student from an activity for up to five days. A doctor's note is needed to excuse a student from physical education if the duration is in excess of five days. Students dress in P.E. uniforms during medical/parent excuses when they are physically able to do so. If a prolonged medical excuse is foreseen, arrangements are made to allow the student to remain in class and receive a grade based upon their cognitive understanding of the concepts taught. No student will ever be required to do any activity that would jeopardize their health.
How do I purchase additional PE clothes? Payments are made in the Main Office, then student will pick up items from his/her PE teacher.
What do we do about lost or damaged textbooks? Students are responsible for proper care of the textbooks which are issued to them. Books should be covered at all times. A fee will be assessed for damaged or lost books payable in the Main Office.
How can my child receive a replacement ID card? Replacement photo IDs can be purchased from the Account Technician in the front office for a donation of $5.00.

What happens if your child forgets his/her lunch? Please drop all forgotten items (lunches, homework, musical instruments, etc.) in the main office. Lunches go in the ice chest which will be rolled to the lunch area just before lunch - don't drop off after the ice chest has been moved. Remind your student to check the main office when something has been left at home because we will not deliver or send passes to the student. It is helpful to keep a balance on the student's lunch account to provide a meal when the bag lunch has been left behind. Do not make a habit of bringing lunches to school as this disrupts the daily routine.
How do I report my child's absence? Email firstname.lastname@example.org the morning of your child's absence. Leave the student's name, grade, reason for illness and dates affected.

What should I do if my child needs to leave school early? Please report to the Attendance Office and request your child be called from class. Allow ample time for your child to be able to report to the Attendance Office, especially if he/she has PE and has to change first. Please have your identification ready.
What if my child needs to leave early from an after-school activity or dance? Parents please come to the door of the Multi-Purpose Room or other room where the after school activity is taking place.
