Students will not be called out of class (out-of-school passes) until the parent arrives to sign the student out. To fax an out-of-school pass, please call 301-334-3086. Make sure the note is signed and dated with the time of release. If a student has a different last name than parent, make sure it is included on all notes

Southern Garrett High School believes that it is imperative that all students be punctual to school and attend classes regularly.   As we know, there is a direct relationship between regular attendance and academic achievement which leads to completion of the school program.
