If your student needs to be dismissed early from school, please send a NOTE with your student stating their first and last name, grade, date, time and reason. This note must be signed by the parent or guardian. Students should come to the attendance office with the note before school, during break or at lunch to obtain a pass to leave. After obtaining a pass, the student can leave campus at the time shown on the pass.
Due to how busy our staff and teachers are at the end of the day, the last group of passes will be distributed at 3:05pm.
To check out your student in an emergency, please call the attendance office at (530) 622-3634, ext. 1011. Please use this option only in an emergency.
EL DORADO HIGH SCHOOL IS A CLOSED CAMPUS. STUDENTS MAY NOT LEAVE CAMPUS DURING SCHOOL HOURS WITHOUT A PASS. If your student does not check out before leaving they will receive one hour of detention – no exceptions.
If your student is arriving late to school, they must check in at the attendance office to get a pass to class. They need a note signed by their parent/guardian that states their first and last name, grade, date and reason they are late. If the student does not bring a note they will be assigned a detention as an unexcused tardy.
If your student gets ill during class time, they must go to the health office. If needed, the student will be checked out through the health office not the attendance office. If your student contacts you directly, please instruct them to go to the health office.
If your student is absent from school, homework should be requested directly from their teacher. You can email your student’s teachers using the teacher’s initial of their first name and their last name @eduhsd.net or go to http://cougar.eduhsd.net. When you are on our website go to the ‘For Parents’ tab, then click on ‘staff directory’.
Final Exams and Testing
During final exams and standardized testing we cannot interrupt classes to deliver passes. The only way to check your student out of class during this time is to have them bring a note to the attendance office before class starts or during break. We will issue them with a pass to leave after they have finished testing.
If you are aware of an error with your student’s absences, the student can request a print out of their attendance from the attendance office. They must have their teacher correct the error and sign the attendance form. Once the attendance office receives the signed form, the attendance will be updated. If this process is not followed a detention will be assigned.
