All student interested in taking a Virtual Summer school class should see the Sevier website homepage for the details about each virtual summer school program.
Please remember, students planning to have an early dismissal should come to the front office upon arrival at school on the day of their dismissal and turn in a parent note. The student will receive a dismissal pass slip. The student will then show the teacher this slip as they arrive at the beginning of the class period in which they have the early dismissal. It is the student’s responsibility to watch the clock, remind the teacher and leave a few minutes early in order to be in the office at the time of the dismissal. Don’t have a note? Come to the office anyway to notify the office and get your dismissal pass. Dismissals that are not prearranged require staff to call into classrooms which interrupts classroom instruction and hinders focus and productivity.
Car line procedures are posted on the website. Students are not allowed to be dropped off or picked up off campus. Students that are car riders are expected to have their ride on campus by 3:45pm. All car riders must be picked up by 4:00pm.
