Message from Attendance
Absent from school? - Students MUST bring an excuse note signed by their parent or guardian, or a doctor's note when they return to school. Excuse notes must clearly include the student's first and last name. Excuse notes MUST be turned in to the Attendance Office located next door to the Front Office. If students do not turn in an excuse note when absent from school, the absence becomes unexcused after 3 days. An accumulation of unexcused absences can lead to a Truancy Board meeting with the Maryville City Schools Attendance Supervisor. Please turn in your excuse notes.
Is your student ready to start driving? – Students MUST request their 1010 Form in the MJHS Attendance Office before going to the DMV to receive their Learner’s Permit. If you have additional questions, please contact Mrs. Jenkins in the school office or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

MJHS Bus Riders: On occasion students like to have guests (friends) ride the bus home with them. Both the regular bus rider and the guest need to have written notes from their parents. The regular bus rider note needs to acknowledge the parent gives permission for the guest to ride the bus home with his/her child. The guest rider note needs to acknowledge the parent gives permission for his/her child to ride the bus home with the regular bus rider. The regular rider and the guest rider need to bring the parent permission notes to the assistant principals' office for administrative approval. The assistant principals will stamp and sign the permission notes. The students will then take and give the approved permission notes to the driver of the regular rider's bus. Please keep in mind, if a bus is full of regular riders, guest riders will not be approved to ride the bus home with the regular rider, by either the assistant principal(s) and/or the bus driver at the time of boarding. In those circumstances, the guest rider will have to utilize their normal transportation or make other arrangements with their parent to get to the home of the regular bus rider friend. If you have questions or need clarification, please reach out to Nick Kessler, Assistant Principal or Melissa Stowers, Assistant Principal.
