Absence and Dismissal
Please call Attendance Office (817) 245-0034 to report absences and to have your child dismissed. When you call to have your child dismissed (two hours prior to departure), your child must sign out at the ATTENDANCE OFFICE. Also, your child must sign in at the Attendance Office when they return. If you personally come to BHS, the front office will handle the dismissal at the exterior door and you must show proper ID. All students who arrive late or are returning from an appointment must sign in at the ATTENDANCE OFFICE.
The same process applies to students in high school. If the student’s parent authorizes the student to leave campus unaccompanied, a note provided by the parent must be submitted to the main office no later than two hours prior to the student’s need to leave campus. A phone call from the parent may be accepted, but the school may ultimately require a note for documentation purposes. The student must sign out through the main office and sign in upon his or her return if the student returns the same day.
