Overview of the Early Dismissal Process from the Attendance Office:

Please help our attendance staff meet the needs of all families by following these guidelines when your student needs to be dismissed from school early. Thank you for your help.

  • If you send a note in with your student, they should come to the attendance office to get a pass for early dismissal.  Your student will be released from class and you don’t need to call in at the time of dismissal.
  • If you call ahead to inform us of an early dismissal, please call at least 45 minutes before your student needs to be released, so we can have them released on time. 
  • If you call the attendance office and there is no answer, please leave a voicemail message.  The voicemail is checked regularly throughout each hour of the day.  We will have your student released based on your message, so please do not call, again.  Repeated calls to attendance simply make it harder for staff to keep up. 
  • If you come to school to pick up your student without having sent a note or called earlier, please call from the curbside.  Again, if there is no answer, please leave a message as it will be retrieved right away.  At the very end of the day, when call volume is high, we will call your student down in the order that calls have come in.

This Saturday we, the sophomore class officers, are having a car wash at western in front of the school to raise money for the 2022-23 prom. We will be washing cars right out front of the school by the gym entrance. Free car washes and lemonade will be offered from 10-1 from leadership students, so if you would like to stop by for a car wash, some lemonade, or to donate to next years prom fund it would be greatly appreciated!
