Consistent daily attendance is crucial for a student’s success. It is imperative students arrive on time, stay for the entire day, and participate fully in class activities. Failure to do so will jeopardize the student’s chances for course completion.
Please refer to the Barrow County School System School Attendance policy for all students. If a student is going to be out of school for an acceptable reason, parent(s) and/or guardian(s) must contact the Horizon Program before 8:30 a.m. to excuse the absence. The phone number is 770-867-2900.
Early Dismissal Procedures
Students will not be allowed to leave the Horizon Program during school hours unless they are checked out by someone included on the student’s contact information. If students drive to campus, they may bring a note from home and will be allowed to leave only if someone on their contact sheet may be reached by phone to verify the written dismissal. If parent(s) and/or guardian(s) wish to add someone to their student’s contact sheet, they must come to the school and make the necessary changes to their contact sheet in writing. Additions will not be made via phone correspondence.
