Attendance Policy

If your student is absent from school for any reason, a phone call or note from a parent or guardian is required for the absence to be an excused absence.  If your student needs to leave school early and will be driving themselves OR be picked up by someone other than a parent or guardian, you will need to call the school in advance for the student to leave early with that person.

If you have any questions, please call the high school office at 620-892-5215 X2.

Seniors will also be taking their Senior Class Photo.
