Good attendance is vital to the academic success of every student. Please, make sure your student arrives at school on time as often as possible. Under the compulsory education, law it is the duty of the parent or guardian to notify the school regarding the reason for absences of school-aged children.
Students need to be in attendance for at least two hours to be counted as "present" for one-half day. Students arriving late or departing early will have their attendance record accurately reflect the portion of the school day they were reported as "present."
If it is necessary for your child to be absent, please call the attendance desk at 918-833-9600 before 10:30 a.m. All absences must have a written or verbal explanation provided by the parent/guardian within 48 hours of the student's return to school. An absence for which no acceptable explanation is received shall be deemed unexcused.
Adults who arrive at a school to check out a student must check in with the main office, sign an early release document and provide valid photo identification. The school office staff will check the signature and photo identification against the District’s student information management system to ensure the adult is authorized by the parents to have physical custody of the child.
Legal guardians are automatically authorized to check their child out of school unless official court documents are submitted to the school’s main office with instructions that restrict the parent/guardian’s access to the child. Such instructions will be entered into the District’s student information management system.
Only a parent or legal guardian may designate another adult (over the age of 18) to pick up a student early from school. Such authorization must be presented in writing and entered into the District’s emergency contact database. Persons authorized by the parent or legal guardian for early pickup must be able to produce a valid, unexpired, photo identification card.
No Early Release Policy
Parents, please do not request early dismissals for your child after 3:05 p.m. If your child has a scheduled appointment (doctors, dentist, orthodontist, etc.) please show documentation for the release. Thank you for your help with the education of your child.
Politica de no Salida Temprana
Padres, por favor eviten que sus hijos falten a la ultima clase, no los recoja despues de las 3:05 p.m. Si su hijo/a tien una cita (doctor, dentista, ortodoncista, etc.) Durante este horario por favor muestre el documento correspondiente para justificar su salida temprano. Gracias por su ayuda con la educacion de su hijo(a).
Students will only be checked out with written parental notification or calling the attendance desk at 918-833-9603. Parents must notify the school prior to students being checked out or personally come in to the front attendance desk to check a student out.
If it is necessary to leave school for any reason, a permit must be obtained, signed by the parent, doctor and/or dentist and returned when the student returns to school. Students arriving late to school must check in at the front attendance desk.
