The student car loading is located in the circular area off the gravel back parking lot.

Student Dismissal Transportation Changes: Dismissal transportation changes should be made at home prior to the beginning of the school day and a note sent to the teacher. Changes called into the office should be reserved for emergency and unexpected reasons only. In the event that it is necessary to make changes during the school day, we ask that such calls be made prior to 12:00 p.m. when possible. Students riding another bus home or going home with another student are required to bring a note from their parent or guardian. Upon receipt and approval from the office, a bus pass will be issued for the student to ride the bus or be dropped off at non-routine destination. These procedures are in place for the safety of our students.

Check-In & Check-Out Procedures

Check-Out/Check-In Procedures:
For the safety of our students only persons designated on the student's emergency list are allowed to check students out. All student checkouts are through the office. The check-out log must be signed by the person checking the student out and include the name of the student, date, time, reason for dismissal. The student will be called to the office by school personnel. Students checked out prior to the official dismissal time will receive either an excused or unexcused tardy depending on the reason for early dismissal. Any unauthorized pickup will result in a call to legal authorities.  For late check-in or returning to school students must sign in on the check-in log in the office and have a written parent excuse in order for the tardy to be excused.

Tardiness:
All school doors are locked at 7:45 a.m.  Students are considered tardy at this time.  Students are counted tardy for any time missed up to 34% of the day. Time missed beyond 34% of the day shall count as half-day absence. Excessive tardies can result in Webster County Cody of Acceptable Behavior action and/or truancy procedures. Please refer to the attendance policy in Webster County Code of Acceptable Behavior for additional information. A written parent excuse must be turned in at the office in order to be excused.
