Student Sign-in and Sign-out Procedures
In the event a student must leave during class hours, a parent/guardian or authorized adult (as listed on the emergency contact card) must sign him/her out in or order for Discovery to comply with state guidelines for student safety. The Sign-in/Sign-out Log is located in the school office. Come directly to the office to pick-up students. Make every attempt to schedule appointments for your child outside of regular school hours. If your child must leave school for an appointment, but will be returning, you must sign your child back in at the office upon his/her return.
 
Tardy
Students who arrive after the school bell rings are required to report to the office, sign-in, and obtain a late slip before proceeding to class.
