REMINDER ABOUT EARLY DISMISSALS AND ABSENCES In an effort to minimize the number of times we interrupt class, we are asking parents to send their students to school with a note or email email@example.com when they need to be dismissed early. The note should contain the student’s name, date, time of dismissal, reason for dismissal and should be signed by a parent. The student should then bring the note to the office when they first arrive in the morning so that they can be given an “Early Dismissal Slip”. The student will then present the “Early Dismissal Slip” to the teacher whose class they will be leaving out of when they first arrive in that class. The teacher will dismiss the student directly to the office and there will be no need to disturb class.
In addition, if you know in advance that your student will be absent, he or she should pick up a “Requested Absence Form” from the office and have it completed by all of their teachers whose class periods will be impacted. The form should then be signed by a parent and the completed form turned into the office before the date of their absence to be approved by Academic Dean. Please also be sure that the top of the form is filled out with the student’s name, date(s) of absence, and reason for absence (i.e., college visit, etc.) If their absence is due to a college visit, the student should also request a letter from the Admissions Office of the college stating that they were there for a college visit.
Also, whenever a student is absent, whether it be a planned absence or for some other reason (i.e. illness, medical appointment, etc.), the student should bring a note to the office upon their return or email Attendance@sj23lions.org . The note should contain the student’s full name, date of absence, and reason for absence.
