LEAVING SCHOOL EARLY?

If your student needs to leave school during the day for an appointment, please be sure to call ahead (402-332-3866) so the office can issue him/her a pass first thing in the morning. Issuing passes ahead of time helps to eliminate interruptions the classroom with calls to retrieve students at the last minute. Thank you for your help. Parents do not need to enter the building. Students may sign out independently, watch for parents to arrive, and then exit the south doors.
