    Students who have not purchased a parking permit by August 11, 2017 may do so on August 15, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.


    Once the 2017 – 2018 school year has started and you wish to purchase a parking permit you must bring in the completed forms from the gulfcoastsharks.com website. This will only be done in attendance office at lunch, and if spots are available you may purchase one.


    Attendance Information

    If you need to pick up your child from school early, please send them to school with a note stating the time they need to be released, the reason why, a valid phone number, and if someone other than the parent/guardian will be picking up the student. The student must present this note to the office staff before school, during passing time or at lunch. Students will not be called out of class for parent/guardian pickup if they do not come in with a note. This procedure interrupts the teacher, and the other student’s critical academic time. Parents/Guardians please realize that you must wait till the end of the period to have a student released without prior notification.

    You may send the Attendance Office a fax at, 377- 1595, requesting an early dismissal provided you give us ample time for delivery.

    • If your child goes to the doctor’s office always bring a note to the office upon their return.
    • Be aware students cannot be picked up after 1:40 p.m.
    • If your child is ill, please call 377-1500. This number is available around the clock. This is a message line only. Please leave detailed information. Do not expect a return phone call unless you specifically request it.
    • Students are not permitted to go to their vehicle at any time during the day; they must bring everything they need for the day when they arrive.
    • Just a reminder to have your child adhere to the dress code policy, especially the length of skirts/dresses and shorts. The policy states proper dress shall reflect modesty and good taste. If a student’s fingertip’s touch skin when the arms are held straight at their sides, then the clothing is too short and may not be worn to school.  (i.e. “sophie shorts, spandex skirts, etc.”)

    Tardy Policies

    Students are expected to arrive to school prior to the start of school. Every student is also expected to be in his/her class before the bell rings to indicate the start of class. Any student who is not in his/her class when the bell rings to indicate the start of class is considered tardy. When a student arrives to school late, they must check in immediately in the Attendance Office, before going to their locker or any other location. If a late-arriving student does not check in at the Attendance Office, the student could be counted truant for the rest of the day. Therefore, it is important that all students check in at the Attendance Office upon arrival to school with a NOTE from a parent.

    All tardies to school are unexcused.

    All tardies will start over at the beginning of each semester:

    1ST PERIOD (Tardies to school)
    1st thru 4th tardy = verbal warning
    5th = one lunch detentions & written parent notification
    6th = two lunch detentions
    7th = one 1 afterschool program
    8th = two 1 hour afterschool programs
    9th and above, written parent notification/meeting, possible loss of driving privileges, ISS/OSS, possible alternative placement .


    Excessive tardies to school may cause a student to have his/her parking privileges suspended or revoked. Any student who has accumulated more than 9 tardies/unvalidated absences to period 1 from the previous school year will be able to pick up their parking permits after 10:15 a.m. on your scheduled day.
