Late Arrival /Early Release Application Form:  click HERE

Seniors who have either first block or fourth block study hall may either arrive late or leave early on a daily basis with parent/guardian permission and school administration permission. In order to obtain this permission, the student must complete the form and turn it in to the Senior House Office. The student must recognize and agree that this is a privilege that can be suspended or revoked by a parent/guardian or school administration. In order to obtain and retain this permission at school, all obligations must be met and the student must be free of disciplinary infractions. Being on-time to classes is essential.


After the form is turned in and once permission is granted, late arrival / early release will be noted on the student’s attendance on the Campus Portal. Click here for permission form: L/A and E/R Form
