• Early Dismissal Information

    • Once a student is on school grounds, they may not leave the property without written permission from a parent or guardian. All notes should be submitted to the attendance office prior to the start of school each morning, and should include the student’s name, reason for dismissal, a working contact number for the parent/guardian, and should be signed by the parent/guardian. Upon dismissal, all students need to sign out with the attendance office. Any student without a note must be signed out by a parent/guardian in the attendance office.

    • Students are not permitted to leave school for lunch or errands, even if they are 18. Any student who leaves school property without prior permission may face disciplinary consequences.

    • Students leaving school for medical or dental appointments, court appearances, or other sanctioned events should always bring an official note upon return to school.

    • All early dismissal notes must be turned into Attendance before 9:15 am, or the parent/guardian will have to come into the school and sign out the student.  Phone calls are NOT accepted for early dismissals.  If a note is not turned into Attendance before 9:15 am, a note may be faxed to PVHS in order for the early dismissal to occur.  Please fax to 571-434-4501.  An email can also be sent to PVHAbsentee@lcps.org.
