Picking Up a Student
When you need to pick up your student early from school, please be aware of the following procedures:
-You may call in advance to have your student waiting for you when you arrive. Please call the Attendance Office at 775-321-3110 with the exact time and reason your student needs to be dismissed.
-You may come in to the Attendance Office to pick up your student. You will be required to show your ID on arrival. Please allow enough time for us to send for your student as it is difficult to send for a student during passing time or during lunch.
-ONLY LEGAL GUARDIANS may pick up a student. Anyone other than a guardian will need to have the guardian contact the attendance office in advance to give permission for the student to be released. If the person picking up the student will do so on a regular basis and is not the legal guardian, there is a form that can be completed giving permission for the student to be release with another adult. This form is valid only for the current school year and will need to be signed and turned in by the legal guardian.
If you need to report your child as truant, Please contact our Attendance Officer, Adriana Partida at 775-200-6221.
DMV Driver Permit and License Forms
If your child needs the DMV form to obtain their permit or license, they are available in the Front Office and must be returned to Cindy McDaniels.
