• Students coming to school after the day has begun (8:20) must be accompanied by a parent. They must sign in at the office and students will need to get a pass to class. Students who arrive after 11:50 AM or check-out before 11:50 AM are counted absent for the entire day. Only custodial parents or persons with parental permission may remove a child from school. Sand Ridge office personnel will not release a child to relatives or friends without written notification by a custodial parent. Persons picking up students should be prepared to show ID. Please do not check your child out of school during the last few minutes of the day. The last minutes of class time are equally important as the first minutes. Late arrivals and early checkouts are documented and considered when determining promotion. Effective August, 2016, there will be NO student checkouts after 3:00 pm.
