Student Checkout Procedures

Student Checkout Procedures
Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow




Early Checkout and Late Arrival: Instruction begins at 8:30 and ends at 3:30.  If your child is late or has to leave early, he/she misses out on learning opportunities.  Please make every effort to have your children here for the entire day and schedule your appointments after school or on days off. Please note: Powerschool (attendance software) keeps track of all absences and tardies to the minute and it is reported to the State of New Mexico.


No child will be permitted to leave after 3:00 p.m. as they miss important directions for homework and/or lose out on instructional time. Parents/Guardians will need to wait until the bell has rung in order to pick-up their child(ren).


• Excessive excused absences, tardies, and early checkouts may result in further inquire from the principal and request for

additional documentation.

• Family vacations are considered UNEXCUSED ABSENCES; it is expected that parents will schedule vacations during periods of time when school is not in session.

• Students who are signed out before the end of the instructional day must have written

documentation for the reason (as defined under excused absences) or be subject to the same

consequences as tardy.

•  The Principal has the discretion to make allowances for students who are faced with serious injury or chronic illness.
