Pre-Approved Absent Request:
Please see Ms. Laura Clary, the Attendance Clerk in the front office, to pick-up a Pre-approved Absence Request Form. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure that each teacher reads and signs the request. All requests need to be turned back in to the Attendance Clerk, at least one week before the first day of absence. This will help us to start the excused process. Please have the student's full name, grade, reason, and future absent days. After your request is approved by each teacher it will be entered into the attendance system. Any questions please call Ms. Laura Clary at 904-547-7301.
A note is needed when a student needs to ride a different bus for any reason. If a student wants to ride his/her friend's school bus, a note is needed from each student's parent. Please add the bus # and a current phone number. This note must be submitted by 9:15 a.m.
Driving off Campus:
A parent note is required when a student need to drive off campus during school hours. Parents will be always contacted before student receives a pass to drive off campus. Parents please be available and have a current phone number.
