THMS Student Handbook

The above file is also in the Student Agenda.

Drop-off & Pick-up

When checking out a student:

  1. You MUST present a photo ID.
  2. You MUST be on your student's records to be authorized to check-out.
  3. Please allow a minimum of fifteen (15) minutes when signing a student out – it takes at least that amount of time to verify valid picture ID, issue a pass, and send for the student. Please note, during a lunch period-sign out time may take additional time.
  4. To make the end of the day run smoother for us all, we ask you to please avoid checking-out your student after 2:30 PM. 

For your student's safety, we cannot pull them out of class prior to the authorized person coming in and presenting a valid photo ID.
