Early Dismissals
  • Early Dismissals should be called in by 9:00 AM to the attendance line at 317-594-4195. This allows the staff adequate time to facilitate the request for dismissal.
  • Parents do not need to enter the building to sign their student out if the dismissal was called in by the required time.
  • When an immediate dismissal is required, the parent will need to come into the Main Office to have the student dismissed.
  • We do not accept email notifications for absences/dismissals.
  • Parents will need to show identification when coming in for an immediate dismissal.


Volunteers/Visitors and Background Checks 
A volunteer/visitor is anyone over 18 who is not a current student. Volunteers/Visitors must have a background check on file with the district and may complete the online registration by going to the district website. This process usually takes between three and six business days. Background checks are good for three years at any school in the district. Parents/ Volunteers/ Visitors entering the building must check in at the Main Office (Door 1 on Olio Road, West side of the building). Parents/volunteers/visitors should have their Safe Visitor badge or driver's license ready prior to check in. If you are unsure if you have a current background check on file, please reach out to Tobi Fields or call the school you are planning to visit. All parents/volunteers/visitors are expected to comply will all rules and regulations set forth by Hamilton Southeastern Schools.

Once a volunteer/visitor has been checked in, they will be escorted to and from their destination by a staff member.
