All absences and tardies must be called in to the Attendance Line at (571)252-2222. Please call each and every time your student(s) will be out of school or tardy. The attendance line is available 24 hours/7 days a week. When calling please provide the following information:
-Full name of the student (Please spell the last name)
-Grade level of the student
-reason for absence
-Exact date(s) of absence
Students are expected to be on time to school and class. Students arriving late to school should report to the Main Office when entering the building. If the tardy is due to a doctor, dentist or court appointment, you must have a note directly from the doctor, dentist of court order for the tardy to be considered excused. Belmont Ridge starts classes promptly at 8:30 a.m. Students must also check in with the House A office before reporting to class.
If you need to pick up your child early from school, please send a note in with your child that morning and have him/her turn it in to our house secretary, Mrs. Kamis, for a pass when they enter House B. This allows your child to leave class a few minutes early and to be waiting for you at the front office. We kindly ask that if your child does not have a note for early dismissal and you need to call the house secretary, please call before 3:00 p.m.
Bus notes are issued on a first come, first served basis. Students must bring their signed note from their parent to the house secretary first thing in the morning. Please include the following information:
-Your child's name
-Their friend's name
-Their friend's bus number
-Your signature and phone number is required
Every effort will be made between the house secretaries to issue bus passes to students who bring in a note, however, it may not be possible to accommodate everyone. If a pass is unable to be issued to a student, they will ride home or be able to call home to make other arrangements.
Lost and Found
The Lost and Found table is located in front of the House B office in the 7th grade locker area. Items that are misplaced in the cafeteria are placed on the table in the back of the cafeteria. Please label items (jackets, lunch boxes, technology items etc.), as it makes the process of identifying the owner much easier.
Activity buses run on Mondays and Wednesdays and leave the school at 4:30 p.m. If you are unsure of the activity bus routes, please check our school's main website under the activities tab.
