Safe Arrival Phone Number: 814-272-8553
Late To School
Students who arrive after 8:10 a.m. need tosign in the office for a tardy pass. Parents/guardians
are to provide a note explaining the reason for
the late arrival. Notes stating the student overslept
or missed the bus are not considered legitimate excuses
for tardiness. When three "unexcused" tardy passes are
issued, a student will be assigned an hour detention after school.
Parental/guardian notes must be brought by the student to the Main Office prior to Homeroom on the day they wish to be excused early. Students will be given a pass to be excused. A parent/guardian or an adult sent by your parent must come to the office to sign you out.
If you have reported your child's absence via a Safe Arrival or other phone call, please know that we appreciate your call. However, state law requires an Absence Excuse for all absences to be returned to school within 72 hours of the date of absence.
3 or more unexcused absences: If the student fails to submit his/her excuse within 3 days upon returning to school, the absence(s) will be counted as unexcused and a First Offense may be filed.
10 or more absences (not counting Educational Trips or Doctor Excused): Parents will receive attendance letters in the mail and doctor excuses will be required for any additional absences.
