It is necessary that a student be in attendance throughout the school day in order to benefit fully from the educational program of the County.


The Board of Education recognizes, however, that from time-to-time compelling circumstances require that a student be late to school or dismissed before the end of the school day.


As agent responsible for the education of the children of this County, the Board shall require that the school be notified in advance of such absences by written or personal request of the student’s parent, which shall state the reason for the tardiness or early dismissal. Justifiable reasons shall be determined by the principal.


If one (1) parent has been awarded custody of the student by the courts, the parent of custody shall provide the school with a copy of the custody order and inform the school in writing of any limitations in the rights of the non-custodial parent. Absent such notice, the school will presume that the student may be released into the care of either parent.


No student who has a medical disability which may be incapacitating may be released without a person approved by the parent(s) or legal guardian to accompany him/her.


No student shall be released to anyone who is not authorized such custody by the parents.
