Student Excused & Unexcused Absences explained
Page 2 Section B. Excused and Unexcused Absences:

 A letter written by a parent/guardian and/or licensed physician explaining the reasons for absences must be presented to school authorities by all students on the date of return to school or no later than the following school day after a period of absence from school. Failure to submit a note within three schools days after a student’s return from an absence will result in the absence being marked as unexcused.

Late Arrival & Early Pick-up
Instruction time is very important.

School begins promptly at 7:50 a.m.
If a student arrives after 7:50 a.m.,
the parent must park, come inside,
& sign in on the computer check-in system
for the student to receive a Tardy Pass.

Afternoon Dismissal
Instruction doesn't end until 2:10 p.m.
No check-outs or transportation changes
are accepted after 1:30 p.m.
At Nickajack, the security & safety of our students are top priority.
