Attention Parents/Guardians: Reminder of Garrett County BOE Attendance Policy

Attendance notes must be submitted no more than three (3) school days after the student’s return to school. The note shall state the reason for the student’s absence, the date(s) of the absences, and be signed and dated by the student’s parent/guardian. It will be the student’s responsibility to obtain and complete work missed due to absence regardless of code. However, work/ assignments missed as a result of unlawful absences will not be given credit.

School Grounds Information:

The administration would like to remind everyone that all Garrett County school grounds are tobacco/drug/alcohol free. This includes the use of e-cigarettes. No one should be using any of these products on school property and all sporting events will be closely monitored. Our goal is to provide a safe and healthy environment for our students and visitors.
