Early Release
(To get a student out of school before they are typically done for the day)

Early Releases need to be requested a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the
release time in order for us to get your student out on time.

  • Date and time for release
  • Student name (spell the last name)
  • Grade
  • Reason for early dismissal
  • And your name and phone number

Unless otherwise directed, your student can meet you outside.
Single period absences need a note to be excused.  No early releases on Tuesdays after 2:20 or Thursdays after 2:55 as students may leave campus after that time if they are not scheduled for a particular reason in access.

To excuse a student absence or tardy:

Please leave the following information.

  • Student name (spell the last name)
  • Grade
  • Brief reason for absence
  • Date(s) and/or time you are calling to excuse
  • Your name and phone number in case we have questions

Other important info about attendance:

We are required to report COVID positive absences, please let us know if your student has tested positive.

Parents have 24 hours from the date of an absence to call and excuse the absence. After that time, per Board Policy, the absence can only be excused by providing a note from a proivder confirming their absence due to an appointment or specific reason.

If there is an issue with a student's attendance such as they were marked absent when they were present in class, the student must first contact the teacher directly to adjust that absence.

If your student is in a sport and has an early release from their coach that starts after the period begins, athletes must go to class to be counted present prior to leaving for their event.

If a student is going to be absent for more than two days for a reason other than sickness or family emergency, a Pre-arranged Absence form must be completed. Those forms are available in the attendance office.

Due to the high volume of calls made to and processed by the attendance office each day, an absence that is excused early in the day will be reported on that day by the end of the day.

If the absence is related to AWest athletics or activities, your coach or sponsor will arrange for the absence to be excused.

Did your student text you to say they are sick and need to come home?
Please remind your student to ask to go to the Health Room.  Our Health Aide will reach out to you once they arrive.
