Attendance - When a student is absent from school, the student—upon arrival or return to school—must bring a note, signed by the parent that describes the reason for the absence. The note must be turned in within 5 days of the student’s return to school. Additionally, if absences become excessive, the student may be required to submit a doctor’s note verifying illness for the absences to be excused. All attendance notes should be turned into the attendance office by the student when they return to school.
Transportation Changes - For a temporary change in transportation (i.e, car-rider to bus-rider for one or a few days), the parent should send a note to school with the child. We will accept either hand/typed-written or faxed notes from parents/guardians with stated approval and signature. Faxed notes must be followed up with a call to the school from the parent/guardian to ensure receipt. We will not accept emails. All transportation changes must be communicated to the school by 1:15 p.m. (no exceptions) prior to the end of the school day in order to have sufficient time to notify students and make appropriate bus changes.
Late Bus Procedure - Late Bus service is provided on Tues/Thurs weekly at CPJH. Students load the late bus at approximately 4:30 each day it runs.
In order for students to sign up for the late bus during lunches, they will need to show a pass issued by their teacher saying they will be staying with and need the late bus. No student will be allowed to sign up for the late bus without a presenting a late bus pass issued from their teacher.
