begins promptly at 8:00 and dismisses at 2:25 p.m. Car riders are
dismissed at 2:30 p.m. Tardies and early dismissals are distractions not
only to the student but to the entire class. Tardies and dismissals
should not occur unless there is a doctor’s appointment or an emergency
situation. The Buncombe County School Board Attendance Policy counts
every 5 tardies and/or early dismissals as 1 absence. Please make every effort to make appointments after school when at all possible.
