protocol for taking students out of school during the instructional day / El protocolo para sacar a los estudiantes de la escuela durante la hora de clases

The protocol for taking students out of school during the instructional day is as follows:

1. Write a note for your student to turn into the office first thing in the morning.  The note should state what time the student needs to meet you in the office and the reason for leaving OR You may call 485-2400 ext. 212 to inform the school that your student needs to leave school during school hours.  If you do not get a “live” person, leave a message stating the name of the student and the time the student needs to leave.  A message will be delivered to the student so he/she may be excused from class.

2.  In all cases, parents/guardians MUST meet and sign students in the front office.   This is imperative; it is for the safety of our students.  Any student who leaves school without properly signing out will be considered truant.

El protocolo para sacar a los estudiantes de la escuela durante la hora de clases es el siguiente:

1. Escriba una nota (aunque sea en español)  que su estudiante debe traer a la oficina temprano en  la mañana.  La nota debe indicar a qué hora va a venir usted a la oficina a recoger a su estudiante  O  Puede llamar al 485-2400 ext. 212 para informar a la escuela que su estudiante necesita salir      de  la escuela durante el horario escolar.  Si no le contestan deje un mensaje, indicando el nombre completo del estudiante  y la hora a la que necesita irse. Un mensaje será entregado al estudiante para que él/ella pueda ser excusado/a de la clase.

2. En todos los casos, los padres/tutores DEBERÁN recoger y firmar por su estudiante en la oficina. Esto es imperativo; por la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes.  Cualquier estudiante que deje la escuela sin firmar correctamente se considerará con falta injustificada.
