  • Planned Sign Out
    • Send a note with your child to bring to the sub school administrative assistant first thing in the morning. The sub school administrative assistant will write a pass for the student.

  • If you were unable to send in a note in the morning you will need to do following:

Please leave plenty of time.  You will have to check in at the main office.  At the main office, you will write a note, and we will send for your student.  Please note that if your student is in PE or lunch, or if the class is out of the classroom, this method may take extra time.
