disease requiring a doctor release to return to school should report to the
clinic before going to class.
Any student needing
assistance getting to classes, due to mobility problems must bring a note from
the parent/guardian describing the disability and modifications needed.
Five minute passes and elevator passes may be issued as needed. The 5-minute
pass will have an expiration date. The student should have this pass with
