Absences - if you plan for your child to be absent for any reason, please send a note to the attendance office three days in advance to get a “RAD” (Request for Advance Dismissal). This will serve as a notice for teachers and get their assignments. The RAD should be completed and turned into the attendance office.
Leaving the School During the Day - To reduce the number of classroom interruptions. Please submit a note with the reason before school begins the day of the request. A “Cut-Slip” will be given to the child excusing him/her from class at the noted time. If the student is leaving with a person other than parent or guardian, that must also be noted. Please arrive at the school office as close to the noted time as possible. It is important the student remembers to come to the office at the time designated for leaving.
All notes must be signed by a Parent or Guardian.
Safety of the students is important to us. Every student needs to be accounted for. Please call the office at 701-323-4557 if your child will be absent. We have a 24 hour answering system making it possible to leave a message at any time. All students that are absent will be counted unexecused until we have heard from a parent. If they are late, a parent needs to call school or they will remain unexcused.
Students must check in or out at the office every time they leave and/or enter the building. Students must be signed out by a parent and they can check themselves back in if they have a medical note. For Medical excuses, notes are needed from the Doctor's Office.
